In the context of continuing support and solidarity between Italy and Algeria, GKSD President Kamel Ghribi responded to a call for assistance from His Excellency Ahmed Boutache the Ambassador of Algeria to Italy and the Hon.Mr. Ali REDJEl the Consul General of Algeria in Milan in the ongoing fight against Covid-19. The GKSD Chairman reiterated his belief that, “We have a duty to support all nations if we are to dominate COVID-19. His donation of essential medical equipment, oxygen supplies and medical oxygen concentrators will support Algeria to help fight the pandemic.”
Included in the 12 palettes received, there were oxygen concentrators. which is a device that concentrates the oxygen from a gas supply by selectively removing nitrogen to supply an oxygen-enriched product gas stream. Several Oxygen Cylinders which is a high-pressure, non-reactive, seamless tempered steel container for compressed gas (O2) used for medical, therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. It gives the provision of supplemental oxygen to maintain aerobic metabolism during patient transport. Badly needed PPE kits were also part of the shipment.
GKSD has recently also donated to Tunisia during the government transition, as violent Covid protests escalated in the streets.
