“As previously reported according to the Ferrexpo’s assistance program, we constantly monitor the situation with the spread of coronavirus in Ukraine, study the needs of doctors and cover them in line with priority. Unfortunately due to the beginning of cold season the situation with patients in our country has worsened and now it is especially important to continue support of doctors who work extra hard to save lives, ”said Yuri Khimich, General Director of Ferrexpo Belanovo Mining.
According to head of Kozelshchinska hospital intensive care unit Nadiia Ovdienko, now the situation is extremely difficult and the medical institution turns to philanthropists for vital equipment and medicines. “We are very grateful to FBM for this concentrator and for the systematic assistance the company provides to our hospital,” - she added.
This oxygen concentrator compares favorably with analogs with low noise level, light weight and energy saving. The device has a dual flow and is designed to supply oxygen to two patients simultaneously.
