Bata’s commitment to health care workers, community organizations, volunteers and their families during this pandemic is stronger than ever. Last year Bata made a commitment to donate 1 million pairs of shoes to health care workers, volunteers and their families as a gesture of solidarity to the courageous frontline workers of the COVID-19 pandemic. On 24th March 2021, they have announced that this goal has not only been reached but exceeded! By 24th March, they have donated 1,007,752 pairs of shoes in more than 15 countries across all their five regions.
From the beginning of this crisis, Bata has mobilized the entire company to make protecting communities as their top priority. That has resulted in an unprecedented movement to engage with long-standing foundations, charitable partners, government collaborators and other organizations on the ground to do what they do best.
