Hanover, April 15, 2019. Continental has donated €25,000 to help the victims of Cyclone Idai in Southeast Africa. The money will be sent to the German Emergency Relief Coalition, “Aktion Deutschland Hilft”, which is represented through many of its member organizations in the affected regions. Experts working for the alliance are helping, for example, to build a transportation network to gain access to regions and villages that have been cut off.
Continental’s donation will help to provide efficient emergency assistance for those affected and to restore the infrastructure in areas that need it the most.
Continental’s closest plant in South Africa is also helping children in neighboring Mozambique that are suffering in the wake of the disaster by making a donation to the local SOS Children’s Villages organization.
