Oiltanking Bulgaria Supports Residents after Heavy Floods
In June 2014, the Bulgarian city of Varna was hit by unexpectedly heavy rainstorms, leading to catastrophic floods that not only flooded houses and streets but also destroyed important facilities. At least twelve people were killed in the floods. To provide short-term relief, Oiltanking Bulgaria gave leave to eight employees who went to the affected areas. Equipped with personal protective equipment, they cleaned up mud, filth and stagnant water from houses and streets. In addition, shovels, trash bags, buckets, work gloves, plastic boots and cooking facilities for emergency care were donated to the Red Cross.
