EMSA staff donates equipment to the Portuguese National Health Service

 Hoping to lend a hand in the fight against COVID-19, EMSA staff promoted an internal initiative and gathered funds to buy medical equipment to donate to the Portuguese National Health Service.

With almost 200 donors, the EMSA staff initiative collected a little over 16.000 euros, enough to buy one monitor, two sets of accessories and protective medical equipment for a Portuguese hospital.

The action was coordinated with local authorities, which listed the needs of national health facilities. The equipment will soon be delivered to a hospital chosen by the Portuguese health authorities.

The Portuguese National Health Service addressed a letter of thanks to the group of staff for the “generous contribution” that will “help the local hospitals in the fight of the COVID-19 pandemic”.
