Statement by Banco Sabadell following the earthquake in Mexico and collaboration with UNICEF


20/09/2017

Banco Sabadell Group would like to express its solidarity with the victims of the earthquake which occurred yesterday in Mexico. Fortunately, Banco Sabadell Mexico employees are safe, and we can also confirm that the Bank’s day to day activities will be resumed to restore a situation as close to normal as possible, without posing any risk whatsoever and with immediate effect.

On Tuesday 19 September the earthquake in Mexico affected highly urbanised areas during school and business hours. Banco Sabadell, together with WorldCoo, a start-up which forms part of BStartup10, has set up a platform which is available to its customers, employees and non-customers to support UNICEF in its clean-up efforts and rapid evaluation missions in Ciudad de México, Puebla and Morelos.

Access the Actitud Solidaria platform by Sabadell Life (platform where you can express your solidarity by making a donation).
