In China, Strauss Water, along with its local partner Haier, worked to purify water in various communities during the crisis. This included donating water systems to hospitals in China, and sewage systems to local villages.
At the same time as the Corona pandemic was raging in 2020, large regions of the world had to cope with hurricanes that left many citizens without a roof over their heads or basic necessities. Strauss Coffee stepped up to assist victims of these disasters in the communities in which it operates. Most of the work was concentrated in Honduras, which was badly affected by Hurricane Eta and Hurricane Iota. The company also provided families with supplies they needed – water, food, mattresses, clothing, blankets, alcohol/gel, masks, etc. Furthermore, in order to assist with a return to normal, donations were collected to purchase basic household equipment such as ovens, refrigerators and beds.
