THE 2020 PROJECT: “€1 DONATED FOR EVERY ORDER PLACED”
“In 2019, we were very satisfied to have been able to contribute to overcoming the health challenges that threaten Africa, by supporting Solidarités International. This project inspired each of our employees and made us want to repeat the operation. But preventing hygiene problems linked to unsafe water is not an end in itself. We have to do more.”, explains Benoît Balandras, CEO of Labaronne-Citaf.
“Another equally important challenge is to be able to help the poorest people to develop a sustainable and adequate solution for the management of their resources. In this way, water and sanitation can be a real lever for development in these countries, and this will have a positive impact on food security, health, but also gender equality and the living conditions of the inhabitants.”
This is why, throughout the year 2020, Labaronne-Citaf donated 1€ to Aquassistance for every order placed. Each purchase thus becomes a gesture of solidarity!
A HEART-WARMING TESTIMONY
“The Aquassistance association would like to thank Labaronne-Citaf for its sponsorship operation in 2020. The donation of €2,500 to our association proves once again that Labaronne-Citaf is a committed company with a heart.
Labaronne-Citaf and Aquassistance have a long history of collaboration (more than 15 years), since Labaronne-Citaf flexible tanks are an integral part of Aquassistance’s CDF5000 emergency water treatment stations. To name just a few of the most notable humanitarian interventions, they were used during the tsunami that hit Indonesia in 2004, the earthquake in Haiti in 2010, and after Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines (2016) and Cyclone Idai in Mozambique (2019).
The tanks have also been used to train NGO partner teams, such as in the framework of the Indian Ocean Regional Response Platform (PIROI) implemented in Mayotte, where Aquassistance provided training in 2017 and 2019 to Red Cross and Red Crescent teams. Everywhere, Aquassistance’s emergency volunteers have appreciated the qualities of Labaronne-Citaf’s flexible tanks: compact, easy to transport and install, robust, compatible with drinking water.”
