Covid-19: the Orange Foundation has committed more than €11 million in 25 countries

In the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic, we are providing additional financial aid to the 25 countries in which it operates to help combat the health crisis and its effects.

Alioune Ndiaye, CEO of Orange Middle East and Africa says: "To take on the health crisis in Africa and the Middle East, each of our 17 countries will use this aid to supplement the projects that have already been launched locally in collaboration with the country’s health authorities. In addition to providing protection kits (masks, sanitizer, gloves, goggles, coveralls, etc.) and medical equipment and taking urgent action alongside NGOs, we are proud to facilitate access to the Covid-19 vaccine which is a huge challenge for African countries."

Elizabeth Tchoungui, Executive Director CSR, Diversity and Philanthropy at Orange, Deputy Chair of the Orange Foundation adds:
"This support for vaccination adds to the €5.5 million already made available in Africa and the Middle East by the Orange Group and the Orange Foundation in April 2020. In Europe, activities to support digital education have also been put in place to help prevent students from dropping out of school at a time when access to schools is difficult."

 

In Africa and the Middle East:
€6.7 million for emergency health aid (protective and medical equipment), -access to vaccination and food aid.

In Europe:
€3.4 million for emergency health aid for hospitals and support for digital education.

In Africa, the Middle East and Europe:
€200,000 for caregivers and to revive local economic activity.

In France :
Nearly €1 million:
For emergency aid to healthcare facilities & professionnals (€650,000), to connect patients isolated from their families (1,000 tablets), to help students in difficulty (€150,000 in meals).

 

From the very beginning of the health crisis, the Orange Foundation has committed more than €11 million to support prevention, protection and healthcare measures and to provide essential supplies to the populations in all the countries within our footprint. The Orange Group remains committed to overcoming this health crisis hand-in-hand with the local populations.
