As a global leading shoe company, Bata strongly believes in being a responsible corporate citizen towards all its stakeholders including the communities in which it operates across countries and regions.

The donation will impact a number of countries, in Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia-Pacific, and India.

“Now more than ever, we are committed to upholding our values and to improving the lives of our consumers, employees, suppliers, customers and communities”.

Since the onset of the outbreak, Bata through its ‘Bata Heroes’ initiative, has been working with its long-standing foundations, charitable partners, government officials, and other organisations to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, in countries as diverse as India, Czech Republic, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Colombia, Italy, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Chile, Peru, Thailand, Malaysia.
