For this year's Christmas campaign, as in previous years, Yaskawa Europe GmbH is supporting the worldwide emergency medical aid of the organisation "Médecins Sans Frontières" with a sum of 5,000 euros. Birgit Schönharting, project employee of "Médecins Sans Frontières" in Germany, accepted a "virtual cheque" in an online conference on 15 December. "Social commitment is enshrined in our corporate vision and is an essential pillar of our work," Bruno Schnekenburger, CEO of Yaskawa Europe, explained in this context. "Especially in difficult times, we want to send a signal with this commitment that only cohesion and support will move our world forward." With the donation Médecins Sans Frontières can support projects in Brazil, for example, where the organization has been supporting 15 health facilities since May. Among other things, a Covid-19 hospital with 200 beds was built in Rio de Janeiro in cooperation with the authorities. The situation is also particularly difficult in Yemen, where people have been suffering from a devastating war for six years in addition to the pandemic. In Sanaa, for example, Médecins Sans Frontières supports two Covid-19 treatment centers, and in Aden they are active in the al-Gamhuriah hospital.
