Audi Provides 5 million Euros in Corona Crisis
When it counts, the world moves closer together. In the corona crisis, Audi is supporting medical and social institutions in its home regions and providing humanitarian aid at the national and international level.
The company is providing five million euros in emergency aid for this purpose. The Board of Management of AUDI AG and the Works Councils at the Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm sites have now launched this package.
The first major cash donations are already underway. On Monday, March 30, AUDI AG handed over a total of 600,000 euros to the hospitals at its home sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm – this money is on top of the five million euros. In Ingolstadt, Audi is now also supporting the challenge “sprint4local – one week for Ingolstadt.”
Initiated by the Digital Startup Center of the Ingolstadt region and IFG Ingolstadt, participants will have the opportunity here from April 1 to 7 to develop ideas virtually on how the Ingolstadt region can overcome the challenges of the crisis and thus emerge stronger from this period.
The international sites of the Audi Group are also providing local support in their regions: Among other things, they are providing medical equipment – Audi Brussels or Audi China, for example. Audi Hungaria will make a cash donation to the Győr Hospital. Further measures are currently being planned in detail at all sites.
