Today, a donation by the Hisense Group of medical protective equipment arrived from China to Slovenia, to the Roje civil protection warehouse. It is one of the major donations to Slovenia, in total Hisense donated 200,000 protective masks to our country, 2,000 sets of protective clothing and goggles for healthcare professionals, 2,000 pieces of surgical protective clothing and 500 respirators, and Hisense also donated a medical ventilator (artificial lung machine) and assisted in the purchase of an additional 46 medical ventilators for the country, which will arrive in Slovenia within the next two days.
Upon receiving the Hisense donation of protective and medical equipment, Minister of Economic Development and Technology Zdravko Počivalšek said: "We are grateful to all the donors who have already and will help with the supply of protective equipment. There are many of them and I am glad that they are. Among them is also the Hisense Group, which has today filled the warehouse in Roje with 200,000 three-layer surgical masks and 2,000 sets of protective clothing and goggles for health care workers, 2,000 pieces of protective surgical clothing and 500 respirators, and additionally a ventilator which is on its way. These are acts that enable our healthcare to fulfill its mission even in these critical times. "
"We strive to help in the best way we can in all local environments where we operate," said Hisense Europe Group President Alex Zhu, "through donations of much-needed equipment, as well as by sharing proven good practices we have prepared based on the experience with the coronavirus outbreak in China, to prevent the spreading of coronavirus and to protect the health of the employees." We have also shared Hisense's prevention safety measures with other companies and organizations, and although Hisense production sites across Europe are still preventively closed this week, we are consistently implementing them and strengthening them in order to protect the health of those who are still in their workplaces this week due to urgent tasks.
Due to the large logistics problems encountered in collecting and transporting donations of protective equipment, Hisense Group also helped Slovenia by providing a warehouse in Qindgao, where it is headquartered, where Hisense employees are collecting all donations from China to Slovenia and shipping them to the airport. Hisense also assisted in organizing and executing the purchase of an additional 46 medical ventilators, which will arrive in Slovenia in the next two days.
