  • The food packages will be distributed through the Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) in the state of Veracruz
  • Iberdrola México reiterates its commitment to the country at the most difficult times and its willingness to help those in most need  

Mexico, September 6, 2021. ─ Iberdrola México, in partnership with the Confederation of Industrial Chambers (CONCAMIN), donated 2,000 food packages to contribute to relieve the emergency faced by families in Veracruz damaged by Hurricane Grace.

Food packages were delivered to the Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) at the headquarters of the Seventh Infantry Battalion in Coatzintla, Veracruz, which will distribute them to families damaged by Grace, which entered Mexican territory as a category 3 hurricane according to the Saffir Simpson scale last August 21.

Packages include non-perishable staples such as rice, beans, sugar, soup paste, salt, oil, lentils, cans of tuna, cornmeal, and rolled oats, plus hygiene items such as soap, toilet paper, and chlorine.

“The arrival of extraordinary natural phenomena is beyond our control, but in the face of these natural disasters, it is in our hands to provide our support to Mexicans who need it, and we will always be there. Iberdrola’s commitment to Mexico is a long-term commitment and we will always seek, in concert with the Mexican institutions, to support the most vulnerable families in times of crisis,” said Enrique Alba, CEO of Iberdrola México.

At the end of last year, Iberdrola México also donated 5,000 food packages for families affected by the heavy rains and floods in the states of Chiapas and Tabasco, with the help of institutions such as the Mexican Senate, the SEDENA and Civil Protection.

This new support adds to the aid plan deployed by the company in Mexico to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, through which it has donated two million units of medical supplies to public entities in 20 states of Mexico and distributed more than 15,000 food packages in 80 communities to support the most vulnerable families.
