Coronavirus crisis

Telefónica-backed squad sends 250 pairs of glasses to Barcelona’s Hospital Vall d’Hebron via their official performance eyewear partner; looks to help health care workers involved in efforts against pandemic all over the world.

Looking to start building support to the extent of their possibilities, and as a first of multiple initiatives carried out to boost awareness and relief efforts for those who combat the Covid-19 disease, the Movistar Team has joined forces this week with one of their sponsors, 100%, to help at one of Spain’s areas with the biggest rate of contagion, Catalonia.

The Telefónica-backed squad has donated 250 pairs of glasses, 50 of those mask-type, to Barcelona’s Hospital Vall d’Hebron, all suited to the work health care specialists at the center need to fulfil their daily tasks. To communicate and explain the donation, the most relevant names from the Blue outfit have posed with the transparent lenses all pairs will feature. This is also the first step of a series of measures by the Blue squad, together with Telefónica and its sponsors, to give a helping hand to those who fight to protect the community as a whole.

100%, a firm based in California, has already donated in excess of 10,000 pairs of glasses to the US health and emergency system (#100percentTogether).
