The Globalworth Foundation is donating 200,000 euros to the Romanian Red Cross to help fund medical supplies as well as logistical, human and material support to aid our country’s response to the threat of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The supplies acquired will go to the “Prof. Matei Balș” National Institute, the biggest medical institution for infectious disease in Romania, and the first line of defence in the COVID-19 emergency. The funding will help acquire vital items such as medical ventilators needed in intensive care units, disinfectant bottles, protective suits, safety goggles, single-use sanitary masks and protective gloves.
This donation comes in response to the public information campaign conducted by the Romanian Red Cross at a national level, aiming to contain the spread of the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which triggers COVID-19.
“Caring for others has always been one of the Globalworth Foundation’s main priorities, and we are now needed more than ever. This new form of coronavirus has reached Romania and we are all at risk: our acquaintances, families, colleagues and friends. It is essential to follow all advice given by the authorities and, most importantly, to show solidarity. It is time to join forces and act as quickly as possible in this emergency, and the Red Cross has a clear plan in this regard. We wish to support it for the common interest and are confident that, together, we can limit the impact on our communities in Romania and Poland, as well as on the society in which we live”, declared Georgiana Iliescu, Executive Director of the Globalworth Foundation.
The Globalworth Foundation’s primary objective in supporting the efforts of the Romanian Red Cross is to reduce the side effects on the health and social system, as well as the livelihood and well-being of the population. The contribution is intended to promote efficient involvement of the community and encourage behavioural change both within and outside of the business community.
About the Globalworth Foundation
The Globalworth Foundation was established in 2018 by Globalworth, the leader of office building market in Romania and Poland, and it is a non-profit entity, as it is independent of the commercial activity of the group. The mission of this foundation is the development of projects on three main pillars: people, places, and technology.
Starting from the idea that the future of any society is represented by the young generations, the foundation focuses on the care for people, which can be supported through educational programs and projects that can improve access to high-quality medical services, regardless of social class. Initiatives that aim to build places and develop urban communities where people can meet, interact, and find solutions for the disabled are just as important. Additionally, the Globalworth Foundation believes in the positive impact of projects which integrate technology, such as incubators dedicated to young people, and supports financing of innovation which can lead to bringing people together, among other things.
