Hutchison Ports PPC on behalf of the thousands of Panamanian employees that make up its workforce considers it necessary to provide substantial support to the actions and efforts that our heroes in white are doing in this time of crisis by donating medical equipment that would facilitate the care of those affected by the virus throughout the country.
On April 28, the company made a donation to help strengthen the Panamanian health system, which included 10 electric beds for hospital use to the National Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (INMFRE ). This medical care centre has been adapted by the Ministry of Health (MINSA) to provide the necessary hospital care to patients suffering from COVID -19.
Jared Zerbe, CEO of PPC delivers the hospital beds together with a group of employees from both ports.
Aware that we must all be in solidarity and work in UNITY as we profess in our corporate values, we will continue to support the efforts and actions of The Ministry of Health and the Government, making other important contributions to the Panamanian health system and thus contributing medical supplies that are needed for people in hospitals, fighting for their recovery.
At Hutchison Ports PPC, we continue to apply meticulously the hygiene and protection protocols, complying with all the recommendations of the authorities for the containment and mitigation of COVID-19 and at the same time making efforts to continue working from our port terminals, supporting from our sector with the supply of essential goods that Panamanian homes and health systems need so much.
