Tuesday, June 30 2020 | 09 h 20 min | News, Press Release
Essilor, through its social impact fund Vision for Life, joined forces and networks with the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) to provide critical equipment to frontline health workers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of the FIA’s #Raceagainstcovid initiative, 10,000 protective glasses were distributed to 38 hospitals and medical centers across 4 continents.
After recently joining the United Nations Road Safety Fund (UNRSF), Essilor is currently campaigning for a safe recovered mobility, as populations are getting back on the road after lockdown.
This builds on the Essilor Group’s other initiatives: through the collective power of its local subsidiaries, it has provided more than one million protective equipment to front line workers in order to support Covid-19 relief efforts (safety goggles, masks, gloves…) as reported by Optik NOW last April.
