There is no doubt that these last months have been challenging for everyone. Around the globe, no one has been spared the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are sensitive to how hard it has been for some. At Delvaux, we take our role seriously of protecting the health and safety of our customers, employees and community and have been stepping up efforts to reach out to those most affected.
To stand in solidarity during these turbulent times, La Maison Delvaux has donated money to two funds that support the fight against COVID-19. We have pledged a percentage of our sales to the WHO and also to the Solidarity Care Fund, which offers a coordinated response to the needs of hospitals and residential care establishments all over Belgium. Both funds are run by the King Baudouin Foundation.
We are proud to announce that we have collected a total amount of €300,000 in the fight against COVID-19. Ever since its creation in 1829, la Maison Delvaux has always proved successful in overcoming different challenges. Together, we will emerge stronger from this crisis with an even deeper sense of purpose. The fight against the pandemic is by no means over and at Delvaux we pledge to continue our efforts to support the people and communities around us.
