BBVA’s donation campaign in Spain for the benefit of Ukraine exceeds two million euros

The donation campaign, which is still active, is intended for initiatives launched by UNICEF, UNHCR, the Red Cross and Médecins du Monde. These non-profit organizations provide essential humanitarian supplies and shelter to displaced people and assistance to people who cannot flee the country. Donations are always needed.

UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, believes that so far more than 4.9 million people were forced to leave Ukraine, while inside the country there are 7.1 million displaced people. In the coming months, some 12 million people could be in need of humanitarian assistance. In the words of UNHCR High Commissioner Filippo Grandi, “Behind the cold statistics there are millions of stories of separation, anguish and loss. In addition, the lives and well-being of some 7.5 million children are at risk, according to UNICEF data.

In addition, BBVA donated one million euros, distributed equally to UNICEF and UNHCR. These two associations are able to provide assistance on the ground and have recognized expertise on the challenges posed by this emergency: mass migration, acquisition of refugee status, women and children without protection or trapped in the conflict zone.

In addition, BBVA has offered the Spanish Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration 200 housing units for refugees. Accommodating up to 800 people, the houses on offer are spread across Spain, with most located in the regions of Catalonia, Valencia and Andalusia. BBVA is considering other support measures for Ukrainian refugees in the short, medium and long term.

BBVA will facilitate the financial inclusion of refugees with a basic payment account, which only requires the submission of an application for temporary protection of displaced persons. Without further paperwork, refugees will have free access to an account and card supporting basic banking services.

BBVA has signed a commitment subscribed by more than 50 companies around the world in favor of refugees. The initiative is part of the Tent Partnership for Refugees, a global non-profit organization of which BBVA is a member.

Finally, BBVA has published a guide for Spanish families wishing to host Ukrainian refugees. The guide contains detailed information and advice on how to prepare, help and support refugees upon their arrival in Spain and their new homes. The guide is available at BBVA.es.

The BBVA buildings in Madrid (headquarters in La Vela and the BBVA Foundation) and the BBVA towers in Mexico City and Buenos Aires are illuminated every night in the colors of the Ukrainian flag as a sign of solidarity.
