We’ve all seen the distressing images from India over recent weeks as the country battles through the COVID crisis. With more than 10% of our George products sourced from the Tamil Nandu region, our teams have been keen to show their support and help make a difference through these difficult times.

 

We’re delighted to have provided funding for:

·       A new on-site oxygen plant to give the local hospital its own supply, rather than having to rely on a local supplier and this will give access to 40 beds currently without an oxygen facility

·       Portable ECG, cardiac and X-ray equipment to help prevent cross-contamination of COVID and non-COVID patients

·       An ambulance equipped with oxygen facilities, to transfer patients between the hospital and other government centres.

 

Given our links to India through our supply chains, this is something our central George and GM colleagues feel very passionate about and will go towards supporting India’s fight against COVID. A huge thank you to everyone involved in making this happen – a great example of supporting our communities wherever they are in the world.
