Alfredo Castelo, President & CEO, MAPFRE USA and Chief Representative of Fundación MAPFRE in the U.S. shares why the company chose to support Mass General.

Fundación MAPFRE made a donation of $100,000 to support the Emergency Response Fund and the COVID-19 response at Massachusetts General Hospital. Below is a special note of thanks from Alfredo Castelo, President & CEO, MAPFRE USA and Chief Representative of Fundación MAPFRE in the U.S.

Fundación MAPFRE salutes the medical professionals at Massachusetts General Hospital for their unrelenting commitment and courage during this extraordinary situation.

Mass General’s continued dedication to the people in our communities aligns with the mission of Fundación MAPFRE, a nonprofit foundation created by MAPFRE 45 years ago to improve the quality of life for people around the world, focusing on the most vulnerable. We know that we will only be able to achieve our goals by understanding the new realities of this changing world, and we could not remain indifferent to the harsh reality of the coronavirus pandemic.

Support for Mass General’s COVID-19 efforts is critical in our fight against this pandemic.

In the face of this unprecedented challenge, Fundación MAPFRE set forth to identify and provide funding for initiatives aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19, by supporting and protecting those who need it most and those who are on the front lines of the battle against the virus.

We are humbled to recognize Mass General for its incredible response to the COVID-19 virus, and proud to support its dedicated physicians, nurses and staff with funding for personal protective equipment. Despite the risk to themselves, these heroes continue to provide compassionate care for their patients, to reunite them with their loved ones as quickly as possible.

Support for Mass General’s COVID-19 efforts is critical in our fight against this pandemic.

My hope is that together, we continue to navigate this uncertainty with resilience and kindness, and emerge stronger than ever.

Thank you, Mass General Hospital, for your dedication and perseverance.
