Partnering for relief efforts
We work as one team with our people, contractors, customers, partners and communities to respond to natural disasters or catastrophes in the communities. This includes making resources available, volunteering, and supporting the front-line workers and organizations before, during and after an event.
For twelve consecutive years, the TPP AES Galabovo plant in Bulgaria has surprised local first graders with bags of school supplies. The 118 children who crossed the doorsteps of Galabovo schools for the first time received the materials.
In 2020, for the 11th consecutive Christmas holiday, the AES Bulgaria team supported children from low-income families in Galabovo with winter clothing and boots. The initiative, called Angels’ Tree, is supported by donations from the company and AES Bulgaria people. The municipality of Galabovo collects information on children in need and, after consulting with their teachers, determines how to best support each child. This year, AES Bulgaria was able to offer clothing to 149 children.
AES Bulgaria donated to the United Against COVID-19 Fund, which helped over 700,000 people in need in nearly 300 populated areas in Bulgaria. Within just a month and a half, BGN 1,006,475, donated by 44 companies and individuals, were collected and distributed, with over half of the funds utilized.
