Dujiangyan, China, - After announcing the project in August, Bayer has officially launched its "Bayer Cares" project to restore the Sichuan Technology and Business College in Duijangyan to normal schooling following the devastation of an earthquake in May.
Bayer has donated 20 standard classrooms, 50 houses and a clinic constructed using Bayer Material Science's MDI-containing (methyl diphenyl diisocyanate) polyurethane boards. The company also provided whiteboards, beds, medicines and other essentials.
A ceremony took place on 1 Sept to mark the official completion of the project.
"The Bayer Cares Project at Dujiang has been launched with the intention to help people beyond mere donations. We are very grateful that the college gave us this opportunity to contribute our expertise, not only from Bayer China, but the group worldwide. We will continue to seek opportunities to support local needs," said Michael Koenig, president of Bayer Greater China Group.
