Carrefour’s Fundacion Solidaridad has joined forces with the Red Cross to support the families of the victims of the GermanWings aeroplane crash of 24 March.
As soon as word of the accident got out, the Red Cross sent its teams out to provide the families of passengers who had been on the flight with help. Teams specialised in the provision of psychological support were deployed both to Barcelona airport and to the area in France where the accident occurred.
Carrefour’s Fundacion Solidaridad is one of the organisations that has made it possible to fund this deployment. Over the last three years, the Foundation has been working closely alongside the Red Cross, enabling it to maintain its field teams.
