Faucets and showers for the Children's Hospital

The construction of Finland's new Children's hospital is under way and it will be ready in 2018. The hospital is a joint effort -financed with a combination of public funding and donations. Oras donated all the faucets and showers for the hospital. The selection of the most suitable faucets and showers was done in collaboration with the doctors and nurses - having the highest standards of hygiene and prevention of infections as a priority.

Faucets and water for the Iyolwa school in Uganda

Our corporate mission is to make the use of water easy and sustainable. Being a value-driven company, we wish to make with our people and products the world a better place. Thus, we partnered with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in the initiative "Engineers without Borders" for a school-building project in Uganda. While the students from Germany and Uganda did the construction, Hansa supported the project financially and by donating faucets for the school.
