97,000 euro in-kind donation supports battle against Ebola. MEIKO contributes to humanitarian aid provided by German Federal Foreign Office and Federal Agency for Technical Relief
"2014 was the year in which Ebola virus disease put humanity to the test. With the help of our best scientists, 2015 will be the year in which we rein Ebola in." This call to arms by the deputy head of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has inspired widespread support, including a donation from the Offenburg, Germany-based mechanical engineering firm Meiko. The company – which produces commercial warewashing, cleaning and disinfection technology – decided to donate warewashing equipment worth 97,000 euros through the donation hotline set up by the German Federal Foreign Office for Ebola relief work in West Africa. The Federal Agency for Technical Relief in Bonn accepted the donated machines on behalf of the Foreign Office and arranged for them to be shipped to their destination. The in-kind donation also included a comprehensive package of rinse aid and detergent products from the Oppenau, Germany-based company Etol, which is known for its cleaning and hygiene solutions.
