Mexico City, June 17th, 2020.- The alliance Contagia Solidaridad (Infect Solidarity), formed by Coppel Group, FEMSA foundation, Santander, Soriana, OXXO and Televisa Foundation, gave out the first 20 thousand protection equipments to healthcare personnel.

Every donated protection kit allows the personnel to be protected for a month. It consists of 100 three-layered facemasks and 4 protective masks elaborated by PTM, a mexican company of plastic transformation solutions that is part of FEMSA. In total, more than 2.2 million elements of protection have been given out, which will directly benefit more than 20 thousand members of the non-COVID health centre personnel in Aguascalientes, Mexico City, Guanajuato, Puebla and Queretaro.
The opportunity for citizens to contribute to this initiative will be open until June 30th, and afterwards donations will be received directly to the fund’s account or through the more than 9 thousand Santander ATMs all over the country.
