Colleagues help victims of

fire in Portugal

Date: 5. December 2017

There was a catastrophe in central Portugal in mid-October: the dry weather caused forest fires, and over 40 people lost their lives. Others survived, but lost everything they possessed.

The disaster happened in the neighborhood of one of our Alron colleagues (RONAL GROUP tool construction). Deeply affected by the fate of his neighbors, our colleague asked for help from all employees of the RONAL GROUP worldwide.

The response was overwhelming: colleagues at all RONAL sites showed their solidarity by collecting clothes, shoes, blankets, toiletries, food and other everyday items. Our colleague at Alron received the donated items and he and other employees distributed them locally to the neighbors affected by the fire, who accepted them gratefully.

Alron is to perform another social activity on 23rd December providing toys to children in the affected areas.
