equensWorldline employees in Italy support two hospitals in the battle against COVID-19
Milan, 24 March 2020 - With the current health crisis, we have entered a challenging time for our societies and economies. As a leading provider in the payments industry and being a part of the critical payments infrastructure, we have made the health and welfare of our employees, our customers and our communities our highest priority. It goes without saying that we remain fully committed to ensuring business continuity for all global and local operations.
In this unprecedented time the world is facing with regard to the COVID-19 virus, equensWorldline employees in Italy joined forces to provide concrete support to the Italian healthcare system which is under severe pressure. By organizing a fundraising and donating their lunch vouchers, in only 24 hours they raised a significant amount. The collected funds were donated to two hospitals: the Luigi Sacco in Milan and the National Institute for Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani in Rome. Demonstrating such civic sensibility, helping the Intensive Care Unit and supporting highly important research mean a lot - especially in these difficult times.
