SANTINI x EMERGENCY: PARTNERS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID19
Santini is proud to support Emergency, an international, independent and neutral humanitarian organization that provides free surgical and medical assistance to the victims of war, landmines and poverty.
EMERGENCY is a non profit association founded in Milan in 1994. EMERGENCY is taking part in the fight against COVID19. More specifically EMERGENCY has deployed assistance resources to Milan, Bergamo and Brescia, while keeping in contact with the authorities of some other regions ready to intervene if the need arises.
In Bergamo, one of the provinces most affected by the epidemic, one of the medical and logistics teams is at work at the Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital.
The medical team, currently composed of 10 doctors, 14 nurses, 4 physiotherapists, 4 OSS, 1 laboratory technician and 1 radiology technician, managing a 12-bed Intensive Care unit.
The logistics and technical team participated in the design and installation of the new medical installation, working side by side with about 300 volunteers, including Bergamo tradesmen (carpenters, electricians, plasterers, plumbers and painters), and 150 Alpine Health volunteers and 40 of the Civil Protection logistics Ana.
In the face of uncertainty but in full solidarity with our fellow countrymen, Santini is here to help. We recently donated 2000 T2 certified masks for the EMERGENCY medical team that is engaged in the fight against the COVID19 pandemic.
With the spirit of our hometown Bergamo, we will continue to work hard alongside EMERGENCY contribute to the cause in order to pull through this crisis.
