Wellpath joins individuals and organizations around the world in condemning the unprovoked, unwarranted, and illegal Russian invasion of Ukraine. We are proud of the spirit of the citizens of Ukraine, who have fought gallantly to defend against the illicit invaders. Ukraine is a sovereign nation and a member of the United Nations; in fact, Ukraine was among the first countries to sign the UN Charter, which was created to maintain international peace and security.

Wellpath supports the defense of Ukraine and the United States Government’s (and those of other countries) economic sanctions against Russia and the Russian government officials and citizens who support this illegal war. We also support the efforts of companies like the U.K.’s Premier League, Alcoa, Apple, Shell Oil, Netflix, Zara, Tik-tok, Spotify, Visa, and American Express to use their voices to influence Russia to end this naked aggression.

Closer to home, we support our Wellpath team members who have a connection to Ukraine. Nikolay Gogoladze manages the Wellpath Help Desk from our Home Office. He and his wife are Ukrainian citizens, and have many family members and friends residing in Ukraine, all of whom are at the constant risk of violence. He is doing his best to maintain contact with and support them as missiles strike neighborhoods and fleeing refugees. We stand beside Nikolay and his family during these troubling times. There may be others in our Wellpath family connected to the conflict; if you are affected by this, please let us know by sending an email to craig.diamond@wellpath.us.

The free people of the world are speaking out with one voice against the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In solidarity, and in the spirit of Wellpath’s motto “Always Do The Right Thing”, Wellpath is donating $10,000 to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). UNICEF is supporting numerous efforts for children and families caught in the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

If you wish to contribute individual support to the people of Ukraine, there are many ways to help with humanitarian aid. Below are a few suggestions (listed in alphabetical order); please follow your conscience when you consider including Ukraine in your charitable giving during this critical time.

Please keep the legitimately elected Government and the People of Ukraine in your thoughts and prayers as the world seeks to end this senseless violence perpetrated on the innocent.

To hope and healing,

Jorge Dominicis // Wellpath Chief Executive Officer
