At the beginning of March, iPoint-systems launched an internal donation campaign for Ukraine: If iPoint employees donate to aid organizations for the Ukraine, iPoint will double this amount and donate it to respective aid organizations. Many employees showed their solidarity through their financial and social commitment. In total, iPoint's campaign raised almost €5,500 in donations. iPoint founder and CEO Joerg Walden doubled this amount privately and donated it to three aid organizations: Ukraine Humanitarian Fund, The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) und Aktion Deutschland hilft. The financial support goes to the people in Ukraine as well as in the countries of refuge.
Many thanks to all of our employees for their support as well as to the aid organizations that are taking care of the people affected. A big thank you also to Joerg Walden for his generous private donation. Especially in such difficult times it is important to stick together and help each other!

Ukraine Humanitarian Fund (UHF)
The Ukraine Humanitarian Fund (UHF) was established in 2019 by the United Nations Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC) to provide funds directly to the most effective humanitarian partners on the ground in Ukraine. The UHF is a very important channel to support relief efforts in the country and ensure that much-needed humanitarian assistance reaches the people of Ukraine. Donations to the UHF are collected in a single fund and made available on the ground to a number of carefully vetted and trusted aid partners who are there on the front lines and closest to people in need.
The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR)
UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency, is a global organization working to save lives, protect rights, and build a better future for refugees, displaced persons, and stateless people. UNHCR has continued to scale up its operations and capacity in Ukraine and neighboring countries since the outbreak of war in March 2022 to support and provide protection to those affected in Ukraine and countries in the region.
Aktion Deutschland hilft
Aktion Deutschland hilft (Action Germany helps) is an association of more than 20 German aid organizations. As part of “Nothilfe Deutschland” (Emergency Aid Ukraine), they support people affected by the war and refugees in Ukraine and neighboring countries, provide essential goods, medicines, clothing, emergency shelter, and psychological assistance. Furthermore, the relief organization cares for people who have fled to Germany and left Ukraine because of the war.
