Members of the Association help those in need
Manufacturers affiliated to the Association of Concrete Producers have actively joined in helping local health care units and social organizations in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic.
From the very beginning of the epidemic, almost all members of the Association spontaneously, on their own initiative, took up the challenge of supporting those in need by providing a wide and diverse range of assistance. It concerned primarily entities operating in the area of our enterprises, it was nationwide but also international (financial subsidy for the hospital of Jan XXIII in Bergamo).
The help area was tailored to local needs and covered a wide range, including the purchase of medical equipment for hospitals, the purchase of protective measures: masks, helmets, aprons, financing and delivery of meals for medical staff. Material and financial assistance was provided to various social assistance units, i.e. hospices, nursing homes, church organizations, parishes and the army.
Cooperation was also undertaken in the construction of a diagnostic center for suspected COVID-19 tests.
The financial assistance provided by our enterprises was very important and significant. It should be emphasized that the aid campaign is still ongoing and the companies are constantly monitoring the situation of those in need and provide them with the necessary assistance. Assistance will continue until the coronavirus is extinguished.
