Shell provides lunch for 1000 frontline medics

The menus will be made available to medical staff fighting COVID-19 in 17 cities.

Shell Bulgaria is donating 1,000 lunches to frontline medics fighting the coronavirus. The meals are being prepared by Shell retail employees and provided to 18 hospitals in 17 cities across Bulgaria. Each Deli by Shell menu contains a freshly prepared salad, sandwich, dessert and a bottle of water. The company is once again supporting the healthcare system in the country after donating fuel worth BGN 100,000 for the ambulances of the country’s Emergency Medical Care Centres in March.

The donation is part of Shell’s ‘Fueling with Kindness’ initiative, under which the company aims to spark even greater empathy and support for frontline medics in the battle against the coronavirus. The provision of food for medical staff has been coordinated with the National Operations Headquarters and the Ministry of Health, and the packages will be delivered in phases to medical facilities.

“With this donation we want to once again express our strong support for the medics who care for us and continue to save lives despite the harsh conditions. They are true heroes and deserve our respect and gratitude. As a company that has been operating in Bulgaria for almost 30 years, we consider it our duty to contribute to society and set a good example in passing on the goodness”, said Kamelia Slaveykova, CEO of Shell Bulgaria.

The company joins the cause of the “Thank you for being there” movement, whose mission is to support medics who are fighting against the coronavirus in our country. The Shell team would like to thank all those behind the initiative for their partnership and their desire to do good.

Shell retail outlets are operating their standard opening hours but under strict safety regulations. In order to protect the health of its employees, customers and partners as much as possible, the company has set up the ‘Protected Together’ programme. It has been developed with health experts and contains prescriptions based on international best practice.
