Tetra Laval Group donates more than 220,000 euros to UN towards COVID-19 relief efforts

April 22, 2020

The global COVID-19 outbreak has brought about never-before challenges in our daily lives, and we remain deeply concerned for all those affected by the pandemic.

Tetra Pak and Sidel, will jointly donate € 220,000 to the WHO Solidarity Response Fund as a collaborative partner of The International Initiative on Covid-19 in Yemen (IICY). IICY is a collaborative partnership of businesses, international organizations and NGOs united by a desire to assist Yemen’s response to COVID-19, at a critical time for the country and its people. IICY founding partners, led by Hayel Saeed Anam Foundation and including Tetra Pak, Unilever, United Nations for Yemen and the World Bank-backed Yemen Private Sector Cluster, will work collaboratively to support international organizations and the Yemeni authorities as they respond to COVID-19 in Yemen.

The contribution will help strengthen Yemen’s resilience and help clinical and scientific experts to respond effectively to COVID-19.

Nabil Hayel Saeed Anam, Chair of the International Initiative on COVID-19 in Yemen said:

“The International Initiative on COVID-19 in Yemen welcomes Tetra Pak's significant contribution to supporting efforts to tackle COVID-19 and avert further humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

“The International Initiative on COVID-19 in Yemen believes in the power of partnership and recognizes the vital role that the private sector can play in supporting Yemen and the communities we serve. It is only with the engagement of our partners, such as Tetra Pak and Sidel, that we can succeed in our mission to help clinical and scientific experts in Yemen respond effectively to COVID-19, at a critical time for the country."

This forms part of the Tetra Laval Group’s recent donation of €10 million to support global COVID-19 relief efforts
