German luxury carmaker Audi has extended a helping hand to the refugees who have entered Europe by raising 1 million Euros as emergency aid.
The carmaker is also considering to offer long term jobs for the refugees.
Rupert Stadler, the Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG said, "We have been shocked by the great suffering of the refugees in Europe. People at our doorsteps are in need - and we therefore want to offer help quickly and avoid red tape."
Thomas Sigi, the Board Member for Human Resources said, "We are aware of how dramatically the situation of the refugees has developed locally. With the emergency aid we are trying to show our solidarity as well as practice social responsibility at our corporate sites."
Through the company's Volunteers initiative, employees can suggest regional projects they would like to implement and the Corporate Responsibility committees will decide how the fund has to be distributed.
