Fundación MAPFRE fight against COVID-19 – #FM_TogetherApart

Learn more about our emergency measures to help fight COVID-19

Given the emergency situation generated by the Coronavirus crisis Fundación MAPFRE is collaborating with society by adapting our programs to help where is most needed. Ever since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, our priority has been to support and protect the most vulnerable people, those who are most socially exposed, and those who are fighting the virus on the front line. All our resources have been mobilized to better protect people against the virus, to support the most disadvantaged population groups, and to help us to come through this crisis with the lowest possible impact.

Puerto Rico Actions

With the goal of helping the most vulnerable groups and fight against the virus, Fundación MAPFRE has donated nearly $ 650,000 to Puerto Rico.

  • This portion will be destined to hospitals for the acquisition and distribution of medical equipment such as: masks, gowns, gloves, face shields, among others. Also for the acquisition of respirators and the performance of diagnostic tests for the detection of COVID-19.
  • From the area of Social Action and volunteer program actions are taking place to provide online support to children in the permanent foster homes supported by the Foundation.

World Actions

We are setting up multiple actions aimed at everyone, with a particular emphasis on the 27 countries in which we operate and where we have an infrastructure, in order to offer our support. Visit this link to learn about all our initiatives to support our society in the fight against COVID-19.

Our efforts focus on three key areas of action:

  • Support for the CSIC research team
  • Purchase of medical supplies
  • Urgent healthcare actions
