(PresidentialHill.com)- The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation provides funds for the refugee resettlement program run by the United Nations in Ukraine.
The charitable foundation established by one of the co-founders of Microsoft made a donation of one million dollars and three hundred and three dollars to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), also known as the United Nations Refugee Agency, to “support refugees fleeing Ukraine to bordering countries.”
The award was announced in March, and it is scheduled to be dispersed at intervals over the following calendar year. Since 2006, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has collaborated with the UNHCR. During that time, it has provided the organization with funding in grants on around ten occasions, for a combined amount of over twenty million dollars.
In a tweet announcing his gift, Bill Gates wrote that In a crisis, we can always search for the helpers—the individuals who are putting their lives on the line to aid refugees and victims of the invasion—and support them. He said he is pleased to contribute to the United Nations’ organization for refugees and strongly encourages others worldwide to do the same.
As many as 13 million Ukrainians have fled their nation since the beginning of the battle and since the grant was announced, which comes when there is continuous combat between Ukrainian and Russian soldiers. According to data provided by the UNHCR, Poland gives the impression of accepting the most significant number of refugees from Ukraine.
The charity’s connections to Chinese Communist Party influence operations, especially those that targeted American agriculture and farms, were uncovered by The National Pulse. In addition to working in conjunction with organizations that self-identify as “socialist” and spreading propaganda on behalf of Beijing, the foundation has also provided financial support for scientific research at many China-based labs that have connections to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Many people believe that this institute is the origin of COVID-19.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has continued to support research in the nation despite COVID-19, the very roots of which continue to be hidden by the Chinese Communist Party. Since December 2019, the Foundation has awarded 93 grants to China-based initiatives, bringing the total amount of funding to $54,573,428.
