The association recently announced that all donations received starting March 11 will be redirected to support the efforts of the medical system to manage the crisis and strengthen the hospital’s capabilities to prevent healthcare professionals and treat patients.
The commitment of Societe Generale European Business Services consists of directing the sum of 100,000 Euros towards the purchase of special equipment, with crucial importance in ensuring the proper care for the infected persons, such as ventilation units, intensive care beds and other necessary equipment, as well as protective equipment for front-line medical personnel who will be donated to hospitals in the country.
“We are facing an unprecedented situation and we are aware that it is our duty to join the efforts to manage the situation in Romania. At such times, a collective effort, responsibility and solidarity are needed to combat this dangerous virus. Thus, the decision to join the efforts of the Gives Life association comes naturally because only together can we change the future for the better,” stated Matthieu Pasquier, CEO of SG EBS.
“We stay home, we are responsible, we are supportive and we act – these are the words that characterize this period. I would emphasize solidarity and action. These are the things that characterize us, Gives Life, and those who support us. We need to be supportive and go through this pandemic together – every involvement action is huge, it can mean a saved life,” stated Carmen Uscatu, founder of Daruieste Viata association.
“The medical system in Romania is not ready to manage this pandemic – we see what happens in countries like Italy and France, which have completely different capabilities than we do, and we know what the realities of our system are and then we can estimate how much is needed help and action. We decided to get involved, along with our supporters, in supporting hospitals precisely because we understand what the real need is. I think that just by being supportive and involved we will be able to overcome this crisis,” stated Oana Gheorghiu, founder of Daruiește Viata association.
Societe Generale European Business Services is a responsible employer and a supporter of many important causes in Romania and many disadvantaged communities. This year began its first financing program, We Care Together, through which it wants to offer as much financial support to as many causes and projects that support the professional integration through education of people with disabilities or from disadvantaged communities.
