We bought specialised medical equipment, furniture, appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, as well as textiles and cosmetics for patients, cleaning supplies – anything that could improve functioning during the pandemic.

Our employees also engaged in the campaign by launching an internal fund raising initiative.
