Lima, May 28th, 2020. Enel Perú expanded the fund released to fight COVID-19 to 3.5 million soles. This contribution is part of the development of the campaign “May our energy never stop”, the purpose of which is to help combat the presence of the virus in the country and thus mitigate its effects on the population.

“At Enel, we will continue making efforts to help contain the negative effects of COVID-19. For this reason, we increased the fund to 3.5 million soles to continue supporting the health system and the most vulnerable populations, which adds to our actions to guarantee the continuity of the electrical service of homes and establishments that have been working hard to overcome this evil,” said Massimiliano Calamea, Sustainability Manager at Enel Perú.

The company has expanded the fund to provide support in three axes: actions to limit contagion, basic needs, and support for the national health system, not only in Lima but also in the regions where its power generation plants are present: Junín, Piura, Ica, and Moquegua.

Following the first axis, Enel delivered individual protection devices (DPI) and hygiene kits to communities, managing to benefit 10,000 people, in addition to providing DPI for 7,000 health professionals in hospitals and medical centers in rural areas, as well as to police and firefighters.

In the basic needs axis, Enel Perú provided, through 6 national NGOs, 5 thousand baskets with basic foodstuffs and water to families living in poverty, which benefited 20,000 people.

Regarding support for the health system, the company is carrying out works to increase the electrical power of different hospitals in Metropolitan Lima. Enel also delivered medical equipment and oxygen tanks to the Talara Hospital in Piura.

Continuing with the contribution to the health sector, Enel provided financial support to the Cayetano Heredia University to accelerate the development of a low-cost artificial respirator.
