We support the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO
Communities worldwide have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and during these unprecedented circumstances, it’s more important than ever that we act together to support each other, our communities, and our customers. We want to do our part in supporting key initiatives that help combat the virus and its effects So far, we’ve donated personal protective equipment to front-line workers in the Netherlands and €25,000 to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO). This money will go directly towards the global effort to prevent, detect,and respond to the pandemic.
We’ll continue to look for ways we can make even the smallest difference. And we wish you and your family all the best during this time.
1. What is the company doing?
We don’t want to offer an empty gesture, we want to make a promise of commitment to our employees and customers that we will take action.
We started by taking the necessary steps to protect our employees and ensure they could continue to deliver our promise of customer satisfaction as safely as possible. Then to help with efforts outside the company, donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) were made to front-line workers in the Netherlands, followed by a €25,000 donation to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO).
2. Why did the company choose this fund and not a local one?
The COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO) is a worldwide initiative, and as a global company we wanted to support a fund that was far-reaching and trustworthy. 100% of the donations will go to the fund, which is completely transparent about how the money is spent. You can read more about the fund here.
3. What will happen with the donation? What will the fund do with it?
Donations support WHO’s efforts in tracking and understanding the spread of the virus; ensuring that patients get the care they need; making sure front-line workers get essential supplies and information; and accelerating vaccine, test, and treatment development.

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted all of us, in one way or another, so it’s only natural that we would want to help as much as we can in a time of crisis like this. And as a global company serving communities around the world, we wanted to make sure that our efforts were as far-reaching as possible. This is why we chose the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO – it’s a key initiative that enables us to support the global effort to prevent, detect,and respond to the pandemic.
