Philips strongly condemns Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, and the devastating impact it is having on the country’s people. Philips and the Philips Foundation will continue to provide humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine.
Together with the Philips Foundation, we are working closely with our colleagues in Ukraine and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health to provide much-needed medical devices to the country’s hospitals, mobile medical brigades, and local institutions such as maternity clinics. The mobile hospital, patient monitors, and mobile X-ray and ultrasound devices that Philips and the Philips Foundation have delivered to Ukraine are helping to save lives. Consumer products, including products for mothers and their babies, have been provided to Ukrainian hospitals, maternity homes, and charitable organizations.
In addition, Philips and the Philips Foundation have been working with local humanitarian organizations, such as the Red Cross and local government agencies to provide support to Ukrainian refugees in Poland, Romania, and the Czech Republic. This includes the provision of patient monitors and handheld diagnostic ultrasound devices to assist in acute and emergency care, as well as products for child care. At Romania’s border with Ukraine, the Philips Foundation and the Italian Red Cross have stationed a mobile hospital ready for deployment in case of emergency.
