Our hearts go out to our teammates in India and Brazil who are living through a nightmare, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage both countries claiming hundreds of thousands of lives.
We can support our colleagues and friends by sharing messages of encouragement and hope in the comment section below.
Ford is rushing PPE – including surgical masks, N95 masks and washable hospital gowns – to both countries. In addition, the Ford Fund is donating $200,000 to support non-governmental organizations (NGOs) providing essential COVID-19 relief in Brazil and India. The contribution will be shared equally between the two countries and will help families by delivering food, cleaning supplies and other essential items.
Because we’ve heard from many of you who would like to help, we are inviting all global team members to join us and consider making a donation, so we can help raise even more funds to assist our Ford communities in both countries. If you and your family and friends are interested in donating, please visit globalgiving.org/ford-disaster-relief/ to view a list of the organizations and community projects you can support.
