Banasa made a donation to the Municipal firefighters of La Blanca, community in Ocós, San Marcos.
Guatemala, August 2012. Banasa gave support to the Municipal Firefighters of La Blanca, Ocos, San Marcos, with prizes for a raffle. The proceeds will be used for the maintenance of station No. 70, so that they can provide efficient services to the community, where part of Banasa´s workers live.
The activity took place with the cooperation of neighbors and municipal firefighters. Alfonso Calmo Pérez, commander of the station, commented that the activity was carried out to provide the station with first aid tools and improve the units to keep them in good conditions and be able to respond to emergencies.
Calmo added: “Thanks to Banasa for their contribution that allowed us to carry out the activity, it was very important for us and our station. My colleagues and I are very grateful”.
Banasa urges local governments to give more support to health services in this area, because many institutions like the firefighters or health centers go to socially responsible companies such as Banasa, to ask for their support because there is none from the government.
