Together with the UniCredit Foundation, UniCredit and its employees have provided financial support to three Czech and two Slovak hospitals in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
In cooperation with UniCredit Foundation, the Bank launched an employee fundraising initiative in both countries in early April.
