Hope and Humanity – Andreas uses his language skills to help Ukrainians seeking asylum in Munich

As Ukrainians struggle to flee from the conflict, it’s important for everyone globally to contribute to various humanitarian efforts to make these transitions as easy as possible for the people of Ukraine. When the world seems darkest, there are always those whose compassionate actions light a path to happiness and prosperity.

These are the stories of some of those shining lights, and what they do to make these hard times easier for those most affected.

Andreas Rossbach – Corporate Communications Manager (Europe & Israel) with Acronis in Germany

Countries all around Europe have opened their borders to Ukrainians seeking asylum from the ravages of war. Andreas Rossbach, an Acronis employee located in Munich, Germany, used this as an opportunity to show his support and exercise his humanitarian muscles.

Andreas offers help in several ways, one of which is acting as a translator to those needing to translate whatever is needed from Russian to German. This helps refugees make doctor’s appointments, find jobs, and housing, and several other critical aspects of settling into a safe, new life.

A theater academy in Munich also recently organized a donation evening, with all ten Ukrainian actors finding a host family without obstacles. The donations gathered during the evening were used to further the actor’s education in Munich while displaced from Kyiv. More info on the evening can be found here.

Acronis Cyber Foundation has partnered with UNICEF to alleviate the suffering of refugees from Ukraine. We have released funds of up to $250,000 for humanitarian assistance to those in need — our goal is to collect an additional $250,000 from Acronis’ donors through our partnership with UNICEF.
