YOKOHAMA makes donation following heavy rains and flooding in western Germany

YOKOHAMA would like to express the company’s deepest sympathies to the families and friends of people who lost their lives during the heavy rains and floods that occurred in western Germany on 14th July 2021, as well as to everyone affected by this disaster.

Yokohama Europe GmbH (YEU), the Yokohama Rubber Group’s European regional headquarters, has donated €10,000 (about ¥1.25 million) to the youth division of the Ahrweiler BC Football Club in Ahrweiler, Rhineland-Palatinate, the German state that suffered great damage during the recent flooding.

The Ahrweiler club is a historic football club founded in 1920, and its youth programs have contributed to the development of many youngsters over the years. However, its youth facilities were severely damaged by the recent floods. YEU decided to make this donation to the club so that it can restore its youth facilities and continue its deeply rooted support for the youth and people of Ahrweiler.

All of us at YOKOHAMA pray that the people in the affected areas will be able to return to their normal lives as soon as possible.
