Brussels, 25 July 2022 – On Friday 17 June, the Mayor of Kaisariani Christos Voskopoulos and the Deputy Mayor of Preschool Education and Kindergartens Angeliki Gavrilis, received on behalf of the Municipality of Kaisariani 15 Air Purifiers MC55W Daikin that will be supplied to the Kindergartens and Nursery Schools of the city.
The air purifiers provide clean air free of germs, which is extremely important especially for preschool children.
They improve indoor air quality by removing airborne particles such as viruses, bacteria and pollutants while reducing asthma and allergy symptoms by cleaning the air from dust and pollen particles.
Their effectiveness against coronavirus is proven, as tests by the Pasteur Institute found that they eliminate more than 99.98% of the human coronavirus HCoV-229E in 2.5 minutes and were rated as 99.93% effective against the H1N1 virus, which causes common flu, in 2.5 minutes.
The sponsorship was implemented by Daikin Hellas' Sustainability Team as part of its actions of giving back to society and supporting sustainability.
The company responded immediately to the request made by our Municipality, demonstrating its social face and supporting the work of the Municipality of Kaisariani.
The handover, which took place on Friday 17 June, took place in the presence of Daikin Hellas CEO, Christina Antoniou, who said: "Sustainable development and giving back to society have been strategic objectives of Daikin throughout time.
In this context, our company proceeds with the donation of Daikin MC55W air purifiers to nurseries of the Municipality of Kaisariani, demonstrating once again in practice both its social face and its commitment to achieving sustainability.
We continue our work dynamically to create sustainable cities and to tackle climate change in general".
Christos Voskopoulos on receiving the Air Purifiers stated: "Since the beginning of our term of office we have fought to get all the children into the Children's Centres.
The hygiene of our children and the conditions of their stay in the Centres is our primary concern.
We thank Daikin Hellas for its contribution and hope that other companies and organisations will follow its example."
