Paul Vahle GmbH & Co. KG provides important help in the fight against Covid-19 and donates 500 respiratory protection masks to the Vestische Kinder- und Jugendklinik Datteln. The mouth and nose protection was supplied by the Chinese subsidiary VAHLE Mobilizing based in Shanghai as a sign of solidarity.

Kamen/Datteln, April 23, 2020 - "Since the majority of our workforce has already been working from home since mid-March in order to work reliably and safely from there, and the colleagues at the manufacturing site in Kamen have already been taken care of, it is a matter close to our hearts to support where help is more urgently needed," says Achim Dries, Managing Director of Paul Vahle GmbH & Co. KG. As in many facilities, protective clothing and masks are also in short supply in the Datteln children's clinic.

When VAHLE received the 500 FFP2 masks from its Chinese subsidiary, it was immediately clear that they were to be donated. At the beginning of April, the Kamen-based company already equipped the local police and fire department officers with 500 masks each.

Prof. Dr. Claudia Roll, Chief Physician for Neonatology and Intensive Care Medicine at the Vestische Kinder- und Jugendklinik, is grateful for the donation: "We are very happy about this gesture of friendship and this strong sign of international solidarity."
