Volkswagen in South Africa – helping fight COVID-19 and protecting employees

The EU’s private sector has been actively contributing to solutions to the COVID crisis in partner countries, alongside the Team Europe public response. Beyond financial contributions to local pandemic funds or other types of financial donation, it has undertaken a wide range of initiatives to provide medical and protection equipment and other health solutions.

In the Nelson Mandela Bay municipality, Volkswagen Group South Africa, or VWSA, has been working with local authorities and businesses to fight the pandemic and keep its employees safe.

Our main priority is to ensure that our employees can work without risking their health.

Thomas Schäfer, Chairman and Managing Director of Volkswagen South Africa
