As part of its social commitment, the company recently launched the Covid-19 Special Edition of the Global Impact Project to support the most vulnerable African communities. Siemens Gamesa (SiemensGamesa.com) funds initiatives in response to the needs of rural communities in the Midelt region. Siemens Gamesa is mobilizing to support relief operations in Morocco.
In order to help overcome the Covid-19 crisis, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has launched a series of social impact initiatives around the world for a global value of 1 million euros for the supply of medical devices and other aid to hospitals and communities.
A total of 350,000 euros have been allocated to several operations deployed in African countries severely affected by Covid-19. Considering its strong presence and its numerous activities in Morocco, Siemens Gamesa has devoted a significant part of these funds to social actions carried out in the country. These initiatives support a large number of vulnerable communities by distributing essential food and hygiene items to them, and by providing containers for housing. The aid also includes a blood donation made by volunteer employees at the company’s blade factory in Tangier.
“Thanks to the various funds granted, we have been able to support vulnerable communities in Morocco as part of a responsible and sustainable approach to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in the country”, declares Sonia Adnane, Communications and Institutional Affairs Director for Africa at Siemens Gamesa. “Many CSR projects are led by employees who are not only passionate about the environment but also about social responsibility and sustainability towards the communities in which we operate. And it is the strength and unity of such a commitment that ultimately becomes beneficial for all, for our company, our employees, the planet, our customers and our communities”, she adds.
