While providing this aid, the REWE Group is also supporting the registered association “Blau-Gelbes Kreuz” (Blue and Yellow Cross), a German-Ukrainian organization based in Cologne, and is working closely with the 1. FC Köln football club which is also committed to helping refugees from Ukraine.

We are assisting refugees from Ukraine with donations and with the personal commitment of our employees, and we are delighted to have such strong partners in the Blue and Yellow Cross and FC Köln.”
