Tools for Life

Holmatro Tools For Life cheque handover

In 2017 Holmatro celebrated its 50th anniversary: a milestone to be thankful for. This was the perfect moment to give something back to society, so we decided to take our Tools for Life Development Program to the next level.

Saving more lives
We joined forces with UKRO IDP and extended our partnership with Firefighters Without Borders. Both organizations aim to save more lives in developing countries. How? By improving the level of local fire & rescue services through equipment donation and training programs. This is a goal we all share: saving people's lives. 

Support program
With Tools for Life Holmatro provides rescue tools, training and other services that support the projects of our partners. Each organization received a cheque symbolizing 100,000 euros worth of support.
