UNTOLD and Neversea are showing us that in these difficult times due to Coronavirus outbreak they are more than just a festivals. The team behind UNTOLD created UNITED, an initiative that gathers the good in Romania donating equipment from the festivals to help Romanian authorities fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
The UNTOLD and Neversea team kept a closed contact with the authorities from the first COVID-19 confirmations in Romania and developed a strategy with the authorities and its partners to fulfill the needs of the heroes in the front line.
The cases of COVID-19 grew up fast and UNTOLD festival immediately created an own fund of 100.000 euros and various urgent purchases have been made.
Here are some of the actions taken so far as part of the UNITED initiative:
• 6 trucks with equipment from UNTOLD and Neversea were sent in Constanta, Romania, to help the authorities in the fight against COVID-19. 4.000 square meters of porta floor, 4.000 square meters of geotextile and 6 floodlight mobile lighting towers were used to build a mobile hospital on a stadium, in Constanta. So, the dancefloor from the festivals has now a new destination, with the help of UNTOLD’s partners – Industrial Access and VOS LOGISTICS. Also, the tents from the festivals and square meters of linoleum are now used by the doctors from the biggest hospital in Constanta, in the triage center.
• More than 12.000 tests for COVID-19 and related consumables were donated to the hospitals in Cluj, by UNTOLD and its partners Cognizant SoftVision and Transilvania Bank. The same team also bought masks, gloves, disinfectants and other materials that are needed in the fight against the new coronavirus. They also donated technological equipment to the authorities.
The health and safety of everyone is always the most important thing. With this belief, the preparations for Romania’s dance music jewels, UNTOLD and Neversea continue, with the hope that Coronavirus will get soon to an end and the measures and restrictions imposed by the Romanian authorities, which are so necessary now, will be revoked and we will be able to enjoy together the summer, outside!
