Together with the world, we are observing the rapidly deteriorating situation in Ukraine and our hearts go out to those impacted.
To support ongoing humanitarian efforts, Blue Cross of Canada is donating $200,000 to the Canadian Red Cross and their Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal. These funds will be used to support immediate and ongoing relief efforts and other critical humanitarian activities, both in Ukraine and in surrounding countries.
Closer to home, we recognize this situation can be emotional and may cause feelings of uncertainty for you in an already challenging time. As a reminder to Blue Cross members, clients and employees, you have access to a variety of mental health tools and resources through your regional health benefits plan.
If traveling during this time, please be extra diligent while in or near the affected destinations. For travel-specific support, please consult your regional Blue Cross travel coverage provider.
As always, your health and safety are our top priority and we hope for a positive resolution to this situation.
