We all do everything we can to help bring help to people affected by the war in Ukraine. For our Uber community in Poland, these efforts are particularly important, as many of our friends and colleagues, as well as drivers using our platform, are Ukraine-born, while their families are currently trying to escape the war zone. See what you can do to help and learn what else Uber is doing to help Ukraine.

Uber has declared to allocate 2M PLN in the initiatives supporting the Ukrainians. Our team works tirelessly to:

-> Support our fleet partners, financially and operationally
-> Finance rides and meals for volunteers
