A message from our CEO
Stay home and stay connected
We are in the business of connecting people. So in a time when we must all stay away from each other, we see it as our responsibility to ensure that the people who are most vulnerable to the threat of COVID-19 do not have to also face the threat of disconnection and loneliness.
We at HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, have made the decision to donate Nokia phones to those who need to keep in touch the most – health workers, COVID-19 patients, people in risk groups with underlying health conditions and the elderly.
As a global start-up, we take pride in working with compassionate and ingenious people from across the world. Today, we are asking our employees in the most impacted countries to get in touch with their local communities and put forward the NGOs they believe would benefit most from a donation of mobile phones.
We are all in this together and no one should feel like they need to go through it on their own.
CEO of HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones
