Chemical companies united in the fight against the pandemic

Bondalti and the other chemical companies that are part of PACOPAR donated 38,500 euros to help fight COVID-19 in the municipality of Estarreja.

This financial aid aims to support several projects coordinated by the Estarreja City Council, including special needs and social solidarity initiatives, which are targeted at various institutions and people in need.

 

Traditionally, PACOPAR (Community Advisory Panel of the Responsible Care Program of Estarreja) companies  dedicate their annual financial aid to local projects presented by social, environmental or sports institutions, but, due to the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision to channel these funds directly to the City Council was unanimous.

 

The Estarreja City Council has used this donation in local public health, namely in the COVID-19 Municipal Testing Plan – applied to all users and employees of residential structures for the elderly and the home care service – and the purchase of personal protective equipment for private institutions of social solidarity (IPSS), firefighters and local health centres.
