Employees in Russia build prosthetic hands

Twelve hundred employees in the Russia region came together on November 30th to build prosthetic hands for land mine victims across the world.

The initiative, called ‘Helping Hands’, showed that geography was no boundary as the different regions in Russia, including Moscow, Magadan, Kupol, Dvoinoye, Anadyr, Pevek and Bilibino,  simultaneously worked together by video conference to create the new prosthetics.

Employees worked in teams of three, each responsible for assembling at least one set of hands from their kits. In one hour, they were able to complete 341 of 400 kits, and completed another 29 more kits the following week.

The ‘Helping Hands’ kits came from an international non-profit organization and will be shipped to countries that need them in the new year.

“It has been very inspiring to see the entire region come together for such a special project. Everyone is really feeling positive after this,” said Helisangela Mendonca, CI Projects Manager, Russia.

‘Helping Hands’ also helped to raise awareness about hand safety in the workplace.

The remaining 30 kits will be built by off-rotation employees and are expected to be completed in January.
