Community Support in Kazakhstan

Community Support in Kazakhstan

We know all about the importance of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) in this industry, but the importance of PPE in the healthcare industry has been thrown into sharp focus over the past 6 months.

Healthcare workers rely on personal protective equipment to protect themselves and their patients from being infected and infecting others. Since the Coronavirus outbreak this has never been more important.

Back in March, the World Health Organization called on industry and governments to increase manufacturing of PPE by 40% to meet rising global demand.

Rising to the challenge of the PPE shortage crisis in Kazakhstan, our team have recently procured and donated medical PPE to the Zhylyoi Region hospital. The equipment, including respirators, disposable medical suits, goggles and masks, amounted to a total of $10,000.

And here’s a proud Stephen O’Callaghan delivering the goods to the grateful healthcare staff with a socially distanced fist bump.
