ADM has announced a partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières (also known as doctors without borders) to support emergency response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic across Europe and further afield
The partnership sees ADM providing a $50,000 donation through ADM Cares, the company’s social-investment programme and is part of a wider commitment to help various organisations including the WHO and other regional organisations involved in the ongoing crisis.
The financial aid to Médecins Sans Frontières will be used to fund a number of emergency responses including the support to nursing homes for the elderly, providing technical support and medical trainings and advice to healthcare sectors, and assisting other vulnerable people, such as the homeless and migrants. Here are some of the actions MSF are taking across these target areas:
“MSF is responding to the emergency generated by the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe. We are collaborating with health authorities, and providing our advice, knowledge and years of experience in managing epidemics and health crises."
"In parallel, we continue to maintain the continuity of our projects around the world, while protecting our health workers and looking after our patients. We can do all of this thanks to support from companies like ADM. This gives us the certainty that only together can we win this battle, because together we are stronger."
"On behalf of all our teams and all our patients, I thank ADM for being at our side,” said José Michelena, Director of Communications and Fundraising at MSF Switzerland.
