Telekom employees lend a hand

Wave of willingness to help among the Telekom employees is great. Relief transports, SIM card distribution, volunteering - Telekom employees in many countries are doing their bit for the people in Ukraine and for refugees. Here are some impressions - without any claim to completeness.

Everything is packed, shortly before departure last Monday. The relief supplies donated by staff members are on their way: in three sprinters. Before departure, Michael Regel and Tim Schiller (r.) received a surprise visit from Birgit Bohle, Head of Human Resources at Deutsche Telekom, and Olga Nevska, Head of Telekom Mobility Solutions, which provided the vehicles.

Telekom MobilitySolutions is currently supporting a first aid transport of employees. They are driving sprinters to the Polish-Ukrainian border. The donations will then continue into the war zones in Ukraine.

The employees Finja Petersen and Stefanie Halle work voluntarily in the exhibition halls of the Hanseatic city. They prepare accommodation for refugees, unload mattresses from the trucks and place them on bunk beds. They pack hygiene bags, prepare towels and bedding for distribution, and and and.

For Stefanie (r.). the first assignment with the German Red Cross (DRK). A coincidence: Finja Petersen, DRK group leader on this mission, is a Telekom colleague. "The fact that a horrific war in Europe is the reason for our joint mission is very moving for both of us," says Stefanie. "But we also realized: actively helping helps against the feeling of helplessness."
