The pictures go around the world. Triggered by the high number of Corona infections, the situation in India was and still is dramatic. The Osnabrück-based tyre wholesaler Bohnenkamp is supporting the local population by participating in the fundraising campaign of Indian tyre manufacturer and long-term partner BKT, thus ensuring more than 80,000 warm meals.
Donation programme “Help us Help”
BKT is an Indian company deeply connected to the country and its people. When the situation in India worsened dramatically this year, the Indian manufacturer launched a donation programme together with local aid organization "Akshaya Patra Foundation". Its aim is to provide hot meals and food to the rural population that has been particularly hard hit economically by the pandemic. In addition, BKT offered its worldwide partners the opportunity to participate in the campaign under the motto "Help us help".
For this campaign Bohnenkamp has provided a donation with which more than 80,000 meals can be prepared and distributed on site. Chairman of the Board, Gregor Rüth, commented: "We have very close contact with India due to our long-standing cooperation. Considering the extremely difficult situation, we and our whole team were compelled to help. The manufacturer's action made this possible quickly and without bureaucracy, and we are pleased to be able to support so many people."
