Haier Pakistan donates surgical masks


LAHORE-The world is facing an extraordinary challenge with communities and economies everywhere affected by the growing Coronavirus pandemic. The world is coming together to combat this pandemic by bringing governments, organizations from across industries and sectors and individuals together to help respond to this global outbreak.

At this time, the country faces an alarming shortage of protective equipment. Hospitals and medical workers across the country are in desperate need of donations to protect the doctors and nurses who are exposed to Coronavirus as they fight to save lives.

In these hard times, Haier Pakistan is donating protective surgical masks to help fight the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. This is just the first shipment of surgical masks. A second lot of more protective material for doctors and healthcare staff is also on the way from China like surgical masks, goggles, gowns and gloves. This will be handed over to government of Pakistan. This solidarity and support by Haier Pakistan is unprecedented. Haier Pakistan takes pride in its Corporate Social Responsibility and aims to provide our best to serve the people as much as possible.
