June 24, 2020: Webb Fontaine stands with the Guinean Government by donating a set of 15 medical oxygen concentrators to assist severely ill patients, including 30,000 three-ply protective masks, intended for medical staff. This aid is part of Webb Fontaine’s policy to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus and ease the burden faced by vulnerable communities.
This gesture of almost 6 tons of cargo for a total volume of 46 cubic meters aims at supporting and protecting local communities both in Africa and Asia, with the goal of saving lives. The spread of the pandemic is putting additional pressure on health systems that are already stretched. Webb Fontaine will thus deliver this essential medical equipment to the local authorities for further dispatch to front-line medical facilities as they deem fit in Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Benin, Congo, Guinea, Senegal, CAR, Ethiopia, Nepal and the Maldives.
“We are in the midst of a global health crisis and I understand the need for immediate and significant donations, especially to communities that are already facing health and economic disparities. We need to all come together to support one another and provide essential supplies to some of our most vulnerable and at-risk groups”, said Didier Reymond, CEO of Webb Fontaine.
Building on the long-standing relationships already established with these nations, the donations are part of Webb Fontaine’s larger vision to help support and nurture communities for a better and brighter future.”
