In May of this year, the Red Cross launched a National Action Plan for the relief of the corona crisis. With this plan, the organization wants to help a total of about 460,000 people. In most cases concerning matters such as the transport of people who may have been infected with the coronavirus to a nearby test location or help with sources and contact research. But it is also about helping the most vulnerable people in our society by giving them food, aid, shelter, and psychosocial support.
That is why this year Blycolin supports the Red Cross with a donation, specifically in the form of food, aid, and shelter. We also support clothing banks in the Netherlands. Two goals are a safety net for the most vulnerable group of people in need. At the same time, we believe that it is precisely these goals that connect well with Blycolin. Textiles – clothing – is our core business, while meals and shelter are the specialties of our customers and partners.
