Ukrainian IT companies collect UAH 710 mln for country's needs over ten days of war
During the first ten days of the war, Ukrainian IT companies raised UAH 710 million for the needs of the country, the press service of the IT Ukraine Association reported on Friday.
It is noted that IT companies allocated UAH 352 million for humanitarian purposes, UAH 183 million to pay taxes in advance, UAH 175 million to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
"Ukraine's IT industry has successfully adapted to work in a new environment thanks to pre-prepared business action plans in extreme situations. The industry's first priority is people, so companies direct large resources to support the army and humanitarian projects. IT specialists with military experience have joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Territorial Defense Forces, and those of them who have not yet taken up arms, protect the country on the cyber front, work at their jobs and ensure the flow of currency into the national budget. Thus, everyone makes a contribution to our victory," executive director of the IT Ukraine Association Kostiantun Vasiuk said.
In addition to financial assistance, IT companies support numerous volunteer initiatives, in particular raising funds abroad, supplying medicines, protective equipment and computer equipment to territorial defense units, supporting doctors, creating online platforms for volunteers, and others.
