Spotify Supports Ukrainian Refugees

Over the past two months, unprovoked attacks have continued across Ukraine. The subsequent devastation has affected millions of individuals who have fled their homes in search of safety for themselves and their families. Throughout this time, the global community has sought ways to aid Ukrainian refugees and help them find necessary safety, shelter, resources, and peace. 

Spotify aims to use the power of its platform to further assist in this endeavor. As they mention: 

"We also know that those in our worldwide network of artists, podcasters, and listeners have been looking for ways to help those affected by war, as have our employees. So, we have taken part in several initiatives to start lending a hand, and we aim to continue this vital work as long as the crisis persists."

Spotify have launched two new partnerships, The first is with UNICEF. Embarking on a multiyear partnership that will explore innovative ways to use digital media and the power of music and audio to support the mental health and well-being of children, young people, and their caregivers, including those affected by war. 

The second great partnership is with Tech for Refugees. As a part of this initiative, Spotify Premium will be offered to Ukrainian refugees displaced by the war at no cost.

The platform plays a critical role in providing users around the world with trusted news and in the beginning of the crisis launched The Source for News and Info on the Spotify platform to do just that. Music also plays a bit part in memory, healing, and hope to soothe them wherever they are throughout this time.
