Unilever has so far donated more than 300 million HUF to help fight the epidemic in Hungary. In April, it offered 1,000 gift packages to the staff of the Hungarian Central Honvéd Hospital and 4,600 Lifebuoy Total hygienic hand gels to the staff of the National Ambulance Service.
“Although Unilever’s important businesses such as ice creams and professional catering products have been negatively affected by the pandemic restrictions, we felt it was our duty to continue to support and acknowledge the work of those fighting in the frontline,” said Unilever Hungary CEO Alberto Di Leo.
The company wanted to thank the employees of the Honvéd Hospital for their commitment by donating 1000 gift packages to the employees of the hospital. The donation, worth around 5 million HUF in total, was handed over on 23 April 2021 with the assistance of Waberers, their partner in logistics.
Earlier this month, the company contributed to the safety of colleagues of the National Ambulance Service (NAS) with a donation of around 4.5 million HUF, consisting of the recently re-launched Lifebuoy products.
The Lifebuoy Total Hygienic Hand Gel products donated to the NAS are formulated with antibacterial ingredients, alcohol and vitamins E and B3 to help remove bacteria and protect hands from drying out. The hand gel comes in a handy travel pack: easy to use anywhere, anytime, without water.
“The comrades of the National Ambulance Service make tremendous efforts every day, so it is especially gratifying to see the cooperation and support from companies and civilians,” said Pál Győrfi, spokesman of the National Ambulance Service.
