Czech carmaker ŠKODA is in charge of Volkswagen Group’s activities in India, a country that is currently experiencing difficult times. That is why the Czech carmaker has donated EUR 1,000,000 in cooperation with the Volkswagen Group to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in India.
This includes material aid that was delivered to India in two airplanes. The first consignment consisted mainly of medical equipment, such as eight and a half thousand Oxymizer pendant cannulas that can increase blood oxygenation by up to 75%. The second load contained an oxygen generator and several hundred oxygen cylinders.
“The humanitarian situation in India continues to concern us. We are in daily contact with our Indian friends and hope that the situation will improve soon,” says Thomas Schäfer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ŠKODA. ŠKODA staff in India have also helped to identify exactly what kind of help their country needs most at the moment and what will therefore be included in the shipment.
