UniCredit has launched two bank accounts to help Haitian people recover from earthquake damages and promoted a fund raising among its 166.000 employees across 22 Countries.
As part of its solidarity initiatives, the UniCredit Group invites its 166,000 employees in the 22 countries in which it operates to contribute to the collection of funds to provide immediate assistance to the people of Haiti struck by the earthquake.
In Italy, UniCredit has started to collect funds for two organizations already active in Haiti, Médecins sans Frontières and The Francesca Rava Foundation. The Group has also joined the initiative announced by the banking sector and agreed to by labour unions and the Italian Bankers Association.
