Disaster & Humanitarian Relief

We aid communities around the world impacted by natural disasters and humanitarian crises by donating essential AbbVie medicines, equipping nonprofit partners with needed resources and providing financial support to impacted employees and their families.

The AbbVie Foundation also matches employee donations to select organizations supporting relief efforts in affected areas, empowering our employees to make a difference in times of critical need.

Support for disaster relief

We aid communities in times of disasters by donating AbbVie medicines, equipping nonprofit partners with needed resources, and delivering relief to our employees.

Israel and Gaza
We donated $1 million to trusted humanitarian relief organizations in response to the escalating conflict in Israel and Gaza. For 2023, the AbbVie Foundation instituted a 2:1 match for employee donations to select humanitarian relief partners and a 3:1 match for eligible nonprofits standing against hate, violence, injustice and persecution of any kind.

We partnered with nonprofit organizations to support relief efforts in Ukraine and surrounding countries, and ensure patients continue to have access to our life-saving medicines.

Turkey & Syria
We committed $1 million to disaster response and relief efforts in the wake of the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

Puerto Rico
When Puerto Rico was hit by two major hurricanes in 2018, we made a five-year, $100 million commitment to support immediate recovery efforts and long-term resiliency on the island in partnership with Direct Relief and Habitat for Humanity International.
