The Quest Diagnostics Foundation today announced a $500,000 donation to Project HOPE to support its humanitarian crisis relief efforts in Ukraine and for Ukrainian refugees in Eastern Europe.

Project HOPE is on the ground in Ukraine delivering medical supplies and other urgent assistance. Additionally, Project HOPE is coordinating with local organizations in Ukraine, Poland, Moldova, and Romania to provide support inside Ukraine as well as in the surrounding countries.

“We are proud of our Foundation’s commitment to support the lifesaving efforts of Project HOPE in response to the devastating humanitarian crisis unfolding in Ukraine and the surrounding countries,” says Steve Rusckowski, chairman, CEO, and president of Quest Diagnostics. “The need is urgent, as more than two million refugees have been forced from their homes. Project HOPE is on the ground providing aid.  We stand fully behind the people of Ukraine and pray for an end to the violence they are experiencing in their country.” 

Quest Diagnostics employees have also donated to Project HOPE, with the Foundation matching employee contributions. 

“We are grateful to Quest Diagnostics and its employees for their steadfast support of Project HOPE,” says Rabih Torbay, president and CEO of Project HOPE. “The grant will help alleviate suffering by supporting the provision of medicines, medical supplies and equipment to health facilities in Ukraine and the surrounding countries of Poland, Romania and Moldova. The need is urgent as the fighting intensifies, and the support from Quest is greatly appreciated.”
