Vityas joined the charity campaign this week. In just a few days, the company raised the amount needed to purchase 15 microwave ovens and 5 dry-air thermostats which maintain a stable temperature inside the working chamber necessary for bacteriological, microbiological, virological and biochemical research. The household appliances will be distributed among the city hospitals and the thermostats among the laboratories that conduct coronavirus tests. Three thermostats will be handed over to the laboratory of the infectious diseases hospital and one more to the laboratory of the regional hygiene center and the laboratory of the dermatology and cosmetology center each. They both have been working around the clock.
“The campaign has been eagerly supported by the staff. As we raise more funds we will purchase necessary medical equipment in agreement with the regional healthcare service. We also call on everyone to join our initiative. The products will be sold at their prime cost under the initiative,” said Gennady Azarov.
The most sincere words of gratitude to all the workers and management of the Vityas company were expressed by Deputy Head of the Main Healthcare Department of the Vitebsk Oblast Executive Committee Nikolai Kaspirovich. “Many thanks to everyone who is doing their best to help medical workers to do their job, to create conditions for their comfortable work. Your support and care are valuable as never before. I would like to thank all people who provide any sponsorship today, donate money to charity accounts for hospitals. We are very grateful for your participation and the warmth of your hearts,” he said.
