26,000 FFP2 and FFP3 masks, 2,000 protective goggles and 30,000 single-dose packs of artificial tears are part of the first package of emergency measures, funded with 65,000 euros, that Fundación MAPFRE Guanarteme has activated for distribution among the population as well as the security and emergency forces. The objective is to protect people against inhaling ash and toxic gases, in addition to preventing dermal and ocular exposure to the emissions caused by the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain).

This is the first step in an aid plan aimed at contributing to the personal, social and economic recovery of the people most affected by this natural catastrophe.
