Zalando supports humedica Corona relief aid

2020/04/29

Zalando, Europe´s leading online platform for fashion and lifestyle, supports the Kaufbeuren aid organization humedica. The revenue of non-medical face masks sold by Zalando throughout Europe benefits one hundred per cent the worldwide Corona relief aid of humedica.

The lockdown threatens in particular the existence of the poorest of the poor all over the world. People, who were forced to live from hand to mouth, now have all of sudden lost their jobs and hence their livelihood. humedica helps in several countries like Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan or the Philippines by providing regularly food and hygiene packages. Furthermore, in Ethiopia and Lebanon humedica has taken on the medical health care in huge refugee camps. Nobody wants to imagine what the Corona virus may cause in these settlements, where often all members of a family share only one tent. It is all the more important to continue the medical health care in order to protect both practitioners and their patients.

„We are very glad about the generous support from Zalando“, says humedica board member Heinke Rauscher. „The worldwide Corona pandemics is a special challenge as our help is needed simultaneously at different places all over the world. Campaigns like the one initiated by Zalando enable us to stand by the side of people in need in these difficult times. We thank Zalando for this important contribution.”

„Everyone should have access to face masks. The provision of these masks can help to protect other people. By making affordable textile face masks available we want to support this aim and help to reserve medical masks for health care professionals. We are glad to donate the revenue of the textile masks sale to humedica, which engages internationally in the fight against the Corona virus. Thanks to its worldwide partner network humedica can assist needy countries directly on site with food packages, protection equipment, education and many more measures", tells us Kate Heiny, sustainability director at Zalando. „For many years now, we have been supporting humedica in particular with donations in kind. We therefore know for sure that our donation arrives where it is urgently needed.”
