Hyundai [“hun-day”] Motor will donate 10 mobile clinics to five African countries to provide free medical care to underserved communities. The mobile clinics are Hyundai vehicles specifically modified to run on the harsh road conditions in many African nations. The clinics will be deployed in Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, and Rwanda. The Korea Foundation for International Healthcare will provide training on the operation of the clinics to local personnel. The donation is part of Hyundai’s “Moving the World Together” CSR initiative.

Nestle, Mango, and the Port of Barcelona are among eleven large companies based in and around Barcelona that have signed up for a new program to help their suppliers operate more sustainably. Each company has selected between two and nine suppliers from different industries and sectors to train. The program, a project of the General Council of the Chambers of Commerce of Catalonia and the Global Reporting Initiative, will give 65 small and medium companies a sustainability competitive advantage.
