Joins forces with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
Building on the humanitarian efforts, Nestle has announced that it is joining forces with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in response to its emergency appeal.
The IFRC is a strong and trusted global partner of Nestlé, with unmatched presence and expertise in providing first aid, emergency response and epidemic control.
The Red Cross and Nestlé were both established over a century ago. As part of the emergency response, the IFRC is providing immediate help to strengthen health care systems, where the need is greatest.
Initially, they will work together in four ways to provide urgent help for emergency services and caregivers and strengthen healthcare systems.
- Donate food, medical nutrition products and bottled water to bring relief to those most affected by the pandemic.
- Deploy available logistics capacities from our out-of-home business to support the needs of the IFRC in various countries.
- Donate CHF 10 million for immediate deployment in countries where it is most needed.
- Match 1:1 any donations to the Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies or Federation made by our employees.
