West Sea, in coordination with the Viana do Castelo City Council, challenged its business partners for a fundraising campaign to acquire hospital material and equipment to be offered to the Viana do Castelo Hospital.
A value of more than 100,000 Euros has been raised to buy equipment, according to the needs identified by the local Health Unit in Viana do Castelo and in close collaboration with its representatives, to fight COVID-19. West Sea revealed that, in addition to the material already delivered to the hospital unit, orders for other equipment were also placed “according to the needs identified by ULSAM”.
“This action to support the needs of the Viana do Castelo Hospital is dynamic and will continue in the near future, allowing the various West Sea business partners to continue to contribute, supporting the population of the Viana do Castelo district”, the company added. In total, more than 5,000 surgical masks, 7,500 personal protective suits, 44 pairs of protective boots and 5,400 litres of alcohol gel were offered.
