Energy producer Gulf Energy Development has donated 6,000 medical masks to Phramongkutklao Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand.
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Gulf Group has supported and launched various projects including supporting the procurement of medical equipment for the Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Rajavithi Hospital, Bamrasnaradura Infectious Diseases Institute, the Central Chest Institute of Thailand, the Police General Hospital and Buddhachinaraj Hospital; providing alcohol sanitising gel to small hospitals in Pattani and Yala provinces; and donating cloth face masks to sub-district health screening teams in 10 provinces.
Speaking about the latest donation of 6,000 medical masks, Boonchai Thirati, Executive Director of Gulf Energy Development, said, “The Company recognises that these frontline workers are working to the best of their ability to treat patients and successfully keep the situation under control.”
“Donating these medical masks is providing another essential piece of equipment to medical workers to protect and prevent the transmission of contagious respiratory diseases, which include more than just Covid-19.”
“Following from Gulf Group’s donation of 100,000 masks to Chulalongkorn Hospital in the previous week, of which 50,000 masks were given to Chulalongkorn Hospital workers and the remaining 50,000 would be given to other hospitals, Gulf and Chulalongkorn Hospital are donating 6,000 masks to Phramongkutklao Hospital to support efforts to control the disease in the long term.”
