GLOBSEC Announces Collaboration with Humanity For Freedom, which Aims to Donate 100 Million to Ukraine


BRATISLAVA, June 2, 2023: On the sidelines of GLOBSEC 2023 Bratislava Forum, a close collaboration between GLOBSEC and the Humanity For Freedom (HFF) organization had been agreed.

Humanity For Freedom will spend more than $100 million advocating in the United States and across Europe for continued support for Ukraine. In addition, the organization will focus on the repatriation of the thousands of Ukrainian children kidnapped by Russia in an unprecedented terror campaign by Vladimir Putin.

"Our mission at Humanity For Freedom aligns deeply with the principles of GLOBSEC. We believe in a world where freedom and humanity are respected and upheld without compromise. I look forward to joining fellow leaders in discussions at the conference that will undoubtedly contribute to this vital cause," said Dane Waters, President of Human For Freedom.

The Human For Freedom organization is launching a campaign titled "72 Hours of Freedom," which will be linked to the premiere of the film Superpower, depicting the life of Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during challenging times of war.

"We stand shoulder to shoulder with all those taking the fight to authoritarianism and striving for freedom and justice. I am delighted to collaborate with Humanity For Freedom, and I am very glad that we can contribute to the support of Ukraine's restoration in this way. It needs it the most at the moment," declared Róbert Vass, the President and Founder of the GLOBSEC organization.

This year, the prestigious international conference GLOBSEC Bratislava Forum was attended by more than 1300 guests from over 65 countries worldwide. Attendees included the French President Emmanuel Macron, the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, and the President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola.
