Cepsa’s professionals have donated €60,000 to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL) to contribute to its campaign to assist the groups most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Likewise, the Cepsa Foundation has decided to donate another €60,000, in addition to the €200,000 it donated at the beginning of this month. In total, the donations to FESBAL amount to €320,000.
Thanks to these donations, the Food Banks will be able to acquire a total of 480,000 kilos of basic necessities. Specifically, with the contribution made by the professionals of Cepsa and its Foundation, it will be possible to ensure the feeding of 3,200 people for two months. Both initiatives will be aimed at the Food Banks of Madrid, Huelva, Campo de Gibraltar, and the Canary Islands.

Food banks and charities work together to help people in need
According to FESBAL, there are currently more than 1 million people with food needs in Spain. The organization, given this situation, continues to devote all its efforts to the fight against hunger and is in permanent contact with the federated food banks. These, in turn, are in contact with charities that work directly with the most vulnerable groups.
FESBAL’s general manager, Miguel Fernández, pointed out that “for the Spanish Federation of Food Banks, this type of extraordinary donations, such as the one so generously offered by the Cepsa Foundation and the company’s professionals, are essential in this new scenario generated by the COVID-19 pandemic to continue supporting the 310,000 families we currently serve. They will allow us to maintain the stocks in our warehouses, buy more food and distribute it to the charities with which we usually collaborate so that they can distribute it to the most needy. For all these reasons, we need to count on donations of funds to alleviate the lack of resources and with the objective of continuing to attend to the most disadvantaged people.”
Teresa Mañueco, General Director of the Cepsa Foundation, wanted to thank “the collaboration and commitment of Cepsa’s professionals to contribute to the work done by the Food Banks, which is now more necessary than ever. From the Cepsa Foundation, we wanted to reciprocate their solidarity with a new additional donation to reach 480,000 kilos of food, equivalent to the maintenance of 3,200 people for 2 months.”
The Cepsa Foundation has also helped hospitals in the area of Madrid
Last month, the Cepsa Foundation has made available to the regional authorities of Madrid and the Canary Islands, and soon to Andalusia, a supply of fuel cards worth €50,000 to collaborate in health journeys related to the COVID-19, as well as those of other groups that are also working on this crisis.
The entity has donated €20,000 to the Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid for emergency and urgent transfers in SUMMA 112 mobile ICU’s, the Community’s medical emergency service, which has 28 mobile ICU’s operating every day to deal with emergencies and urgent matters in the region. At present, SUMMA 112 mobile ICUs, among other resources, are transferring patients infected with COVID-19 to hospitals.
Moreover, the company has also donated an amount of personal protection equipment (glasses, gloves, and overalls) to the health management areas in Huelva and Campo de Gibraltar of the Andalusian Health Service, to help protect the health personnel in the hospitals.
