This crisis demands an even greater response from the private sector to fulfill its social responsibility duties to help the people of Sudan wherever it can, especially those living in marginalized communities.In addition to the delivery of protective gear, Siemens is executing the following humanitarian projects in the country:
The school’s project also includes the installation of off-grid solar systems, which will provide energy and increase the potential for economic activity. These green energy systems will become teaching tools for students on renewable energy infrastructure. The initiative will also develop rainwater catchment facilities to ensure the availability of potable water in the dry season.
Siemens has been active in Sudan since 1922 and is dedicated to improving the lives of all Sudanese people.
