The We love cycling platform has joined forces with the Rouvy app to help overburdened hospitals in Italy. For every rider who downloads Rouvy and completes one of the routes, the company will send one euro to help Italy. #RideForItaly
ŠKODA is helping out at home in Czechia as well, where ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, HoppyGo and a team of volunteers are providing over 200 shared cars and 150 electric scooters from the BeRider sharing service for medical personnel or food and medical equipment deliveries. These vehicles are used for distributing medicines and food, among other things. The vehicles are already being lent to and used by over 20 cities, institutions and organisations, such as the City of Brno and charities like Charita Czech Republic, ADRA, the Czech Red Cross and the Sue Ryder Foundation.
ŠKODA’s technical development unit, in cooperation with the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics attached to the Czech Technical University and the company 3Dees, is 3D printing respirators for medical personnel battling against the virus. The basic parts for 60 top-quality certified respirators are produced by the carmaker every day.
