Anduro Fights COVID-19 in Honduras with Supplies for Healthcare Workers
The COVID-19 virus has severely impacted the citizens of Honduras. As the number of cases continues to rise, Anduro Manufacturing is lending its support. On April 27, the company donated 500 surgical masks and seven gallons of hand sanitizer to local healthcare officials. The masks and sanitizer are essential for healthcare workers to carry out their mission of making house-to-house visits to care for Hondurans who have contracted the virus.
The virus has spread to all areas of the country and is being felt at all levels of society. On Tuesday, June 16, the president of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernández, announced that he, his wife and two aides had tested positive for the virus.
Anduro’s record of community support in Honduras dates back to 2009 when it purchased its factory there in San Pedro Sula. As the company moved to make immediate improvements in the working conditions for its local employees, Anduro CEO Marc Datelle reached into the community to address one of the country’s most difficult issues, providing support and serving on the board of El Refugio, a home for children in severe and imminent danger.
