Land Rover is working with its partners The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to help communities prepare and respond to Coronavirus (Covid-19) the world over.
In an effort to aid the important work of the Red Cross, Jaguar Land Rover Spain has already donated 18 cars directly to those working against Coronavirus, while several other markets are also working closely with their Red Cross Societies at this challenging time. The vehicles are being used to essential food and medicine.
Luis Antonio Ruiz, President and CEO of Jaguar Land Rover Spain, said: "We find ourselves in the middle of a global health emergency which requires us all to pull together. As a society, we need to combine efforts to save lives by doing whatever we can. In our case, these vehicles will make it possible for the Spanish Red Cross to reach more remote areas and more vulnerable people in isolation.”
In the UK, a number of Defenders have been delivered to the British Red Cross to be deployed over the next week around the country.
Through its 65 year partnership, Land Rover and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) are committed to providing vulnerable communities with access to knowledge and support, no matter who and where they are.
Over the coming weeks there will be more news on how Land Rover is working with the Red Cross globally.
