We have donated RMB 8 Million to Hubei Province for Battle Against COVID-19 Outbreak
SABIC has announced a donation of RMB 8 million to the Hubei Charity Federation in aid of the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, with funds designated to support the Union Hospital affiliated with the Tongji Medical College of the Huazhong University of Science and Technology, the Wuhan Medical Care Center for Women & Children, Yingcheng People’s Hospital and Huanggang Central Hospital.
The funds will be used to purchase medical supplies and provide care and support for frontline doctors and medical workers, and to meet the specific needs for preventing the spread of the pandemic. Li Lei, Vice President and Regional Head, North Asia, SABIC said, “SABIC is sparing no effort to help aid the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak. We will continue to play our part in contributing to the prevention and control of the pandemic.”
Short after the initial outbreak, SABIC swiftly responded to the Chinese government’s calls to support the urgent production of personal hygiene, healthcare products and medical equipment by offering much-needed materials, consolidating the efforts to curb the spread of the pandemic and the personal protection of the public.
SABIC quickly deployed 50 tons of materials to support the production of containers for disinfectant, delivered four tons of materials to meet the production needs for respirators and monitors which will be assigned to the Wuhan “Huoshenshan” and “Leishenshan” hospitals and secured many tons of materials for the production of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) monitors and various other media devices needed by hospitals in Wuhan.
Through these ongoing efforts, SABIC employees are consistently demonstrating the company’s belief in “Chemistry that Matters™” in this fight against COVID-19.
