- We are all aware of gravity of the problem with the coronavirus epidemic. That is why financial support from Drutex of over PLN 1 million is truly invaluable – says Andrzej Zieleniewski, the vice-president of the Pomerania Hospitals Management. – This funding will allow us to carry out a few investments in our facilities, including the Pomerania Center for Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases in Gdansk, which currently treat patients with suspected coronavirus. This is invaluable help, since we all know that the number of patients will be increasing. Once again, we wish to thank for the support which allows to enhance the quality of care and saving people’s life and health, as well as safety of our staff – he adds.
- This is the time when everybody who can help, should help, when we need all hands on deck. It is hard to say how long we will fight the pandemic and what the long-term consequences will be, but here and now we require money for the most needy, for equipping hospitals, protecting medical staff, and, above all, for treating the sick– saysLeszek Gierszewski, the founder and president of Drutex.
