A donation to support the field hospital
RadiciGroup and Atalanta take it to the pitch, but this time it is a match for solidarity. The two Bergamo-based companies have decided to support the temporary field hospital that the Associazione Nazionale Alpini (National Association of Italian Alpine Soldiers) is building in the premises of Bergamo trade fair, with the aim of responding to the Coronavirus emergency.
Specifically, RadiciGroup and Atalanta will contribute by purchasing all the necessary tools for oxygen supply destined to 200 hospital beds for Covid-19 patients.
“We have decided to take part in this project – RadiciGroup and Atalanta announced in a joint statement – because it embodies the ‘made in Bergamo’ spirit at its best. The Alpine soldiers (famous for their hard work), are one of the symbols of the Bergamo province, which traditionally values work. It is an initiative that comes from this territory destined to this territory, and for this reason we proudly want to be part of it”.
Once again this project is coordinated by the Accademia del Tennis per la Solidarietà (the Academy of Sports for Solidarity). This charity association has already provided the Hospital “Bolognini” of Seriate, near Bergamo, with a mobile HR-CT with the support of fifteen local companies, among which RadiciGroup and Atalanta.
This HR-CT is essential for diagnostic in-depth analyses for patients showing breathing problems related to the Covid-19. In this way, the new temporary field hospital will take some pressure away from the hospitals of Bergamo currently overwhelmed.
Much-needed help from China to Bergamo, Italy
Radici Plastics Suzhou sends medical equipment to Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital
Radici Plastics Suzhou, a RadiciGroup company specializing in engineering polymer production and based in Jiangsu Province in China, has joined a fund-raising drive promoted by the Italian community in Shanghai to send Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo over 20000 masks and other medical devices.
This equipment has already arrived at its destination. In addition to the donation from Radici Plastics Suzhou, the employees of the company (about one hundred strong) also wanted to participate in the drive by joining the initiative of the Italian community in Shanghai coordinated by some native Bergamascans who live and work in the city. A total of over EUR 35000 was collected to help the Bergamo area cope with the coronavirus emergency.
The solidarity campaign is not yet over and, in all probability, more aid will arrive soon.
This is evidence that, in this severe global scenario, collaboration among the various organisations located all over the world will become even more valuable.
In compliance with local laws and regulations, all RadiciGroup companies and the Bergamo headquarters, in particular, have immediately adopted measures to prevent the spread of infection and are continuously staying up to date on the evolution of the emergency to further the aim of strengthening the Group safety culture.
