Aiming to protect health professionals, Methanex has donated 9,000 professional N95 masks to the regional Punta Arenas hospital.
"As soon as the pandemic started, Methanex made its professional, logistic and financial resources available to the regional hospital. Together, the priorities for aid were defined as safeguarding the health of those most exposed to contagion. We completed the donation of 9,000 N95 masks for medical use, obtained for this purpose”, comments Alejandro Larrive, Managing Director, Methanex Chile.
2018 marks Methanex in Chile's 4th year sponsoring the chilliest event of the Invernadas (Magallanes regional festival), the Strait of Magellan Chapuzón or 'Dip'. The Dip has become one of the main attractions of the festival, with over 2500 people dipping into the icy cold waters of the strait, during wind chill temperatures below zero! 50 Methanex volunteers were on hand to deliver towels and 1500 mugs that were handcrafted by local community members with intellectual disabilities.
Over the past year, Methanex has provided opportunities for young people with disabilities to gain work experience at our facilities in Chile.
To provide these opportunities, Methanex partnered with the Centro de Capacitación Laboral León Humberto Seguel - an organization with more than 23 years of experience providing training and support to young people with disabilities. Youth learn work skills at the Centre, and can now put these into practice at Methanex’s plant under the supervision of Methanex employees.
