Sanofi pledge (re UNHCR/UN Global Compact call)
The Sanofi Espoir Foundation, the Sanofi Group and its employees mobilize to support the refugees:
• A call for donations was launched on September 23 to ask Sanofi employees in France support the French Red Cross in providing medical aid for refugees. Employee donations will be matched by the Group.
• In addition, the Group has decided to allocate an exceptional EUR 500,000 donation to support solidarity initiatives in favor of the refugees both in France and outside of France.
Several other solidarity actions in favor of the migrants have taken place outside of France over the last months. For instance, the Sanofi Espoir Foundation has been providing financial aid to its partners on the ground in Iraq, Yemen and at the gates of Europe for an amount of 110 000€. Besides this, a number of affiliates, such as Hungary, Greece, UAE, Lebanon and Jordan have donated 2 million of medicines boxes to NGOs providing aid to these populations.
