How Amazon is helping those impacted by the floods in Western Europe
Working hand-in-hand with relief organizations, we are using our scale and resources to support our colleagues, selling partners and communities, contributing both financially and with in-kind donations.
In Germany, we are contributing over €1.5 million to the recovery efforts. This figure is split between a €1 million donation from Amazon directly to the local communities in the worst affected areas, and an additional Amazon donation of half a million euros to the German Red Cross to match customer donations to our charity appeal.
In Belgium, we are supporting the local Red Cross with financial aid that will be used to buy clothing, food and essential products; while in Luxembourg, we are donating gift cards and other in-kind products to the Red Cross to address the specific needs of hundreds of evacuated residents.
We are supporting affected employees with what they need most urgently: hotels as temporary housing and paid leave.
Putting these actions in place has been possible as a result of the invaluable commitment and help of our teams, who we thank for their relentless support and contribution.
