At the end of June, a tornado hit South Moravia in the Czech Republic and, in a short time, changed the lives of hundreds of people. Some have lost the roof over their heads or their personal belongings, others even their loved ones. However, people showed that they can stick together even in the most difficult moments and did not hesitate to provide help - both financial and manual. UniCredit Foundation also took part in the assistance, in cooperation with UniCredit Leasing, UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia donating € 135 thousand to those affected by the tornado.
Immediately after the fundraiser announcement, employees from the Czech Republic and Slovakia began to participate spontaneously, donating more than € 19,200 for the reconstruction of the destroyed homes. Moreover, UniCredit Bank and UniCredit Leasing also contributed financially to the fundraiser, jointly donating € 16,000. Furthermore, UniCredit Foundation increased the donations by another € 100,000 to allow the match of the donations up to 10 times. Together, we managed to raise incredible € 135,200 in just two weeks.
