SEOUL, March 5 (Korea Bizwire) — Samsung Electronics, the world’s largest smartphone maker, said Saturday it will donate US$6 million to support humanitarian efforts for Ukrainian refugees.
“We’re pushing to send humanitarian relief materials in cooperation with international organizations,” the company said. “We decided to donate $6 million to groups like the Ukrainian Red Cross Society.”
The amount includes $1 million in consumer electronics, the company said, adding voluntary donations from employees will also be delivered.
