Google will use office space and offer Ukrainian refugees other resources in Poland, the company said on Monday.
Big Tech has stated that it will use its Startups Campus in Warsaw as a space for local NGOs to provide legal and psychological services to refugees. Last week, she pledged $ 25 million in aid, including $ 10 million to local organizations helping Ukrainian refugees in Poland. It also says it helps protect against cyberattacks.
“As the needs of those affected by the war change, we will look for other ways we can help,” the company said in a statement.
Several major companies have promised to support Ukrainian refugees since the start of the war. For example, last week Airbnb announced that it would house 100,000 Ukrainian refugees, and Uber offered free travel between the Ukrainian-Polish border and two Polish cities.
Google, which opened its first office in Poland 15 years ago, has offices in Warsaw and Wroclaw. On Monday, they also said they planned further expansion in Warsaw, investing $ 700 million in the acquisition and development of a new office complex.
