Humanitarian Aid for Beirut
LINET sent ten Eleganza 1 beds worth EUR 40,000 as a show of solidarity and assistance to Beirut, Lebanon. "We have been operating in Lebanon for many years and the local distribution company Kettaneh is a long-term partner for us. We felt the need to help immediately in this emergency situation," said Petr Foit, Sales Director of LINET Group. The implementation of this humanitarian aid was carried out with the support of Czech diplomacy and the Association of Suppliers of Medical Devices.
Beds and other necessary products from Czech companies were sent to the Lebanese hospitals that were damaged by the devastating explosion in the port of Beirut. "These are products that Lebanese hospitals will be able to use, especially in the current crisis, but also in the future when they manage to overcome the worst period," said Jana Vykoukalová, chairwoman of the Association of Medical Device Suppliers. According to Petr Foit, the great advantage is the fact that Lebanese medics already know LINET products and, because of the background with a long-term partner, things such as the necessary maintenance, service, and training of staff are also provided "automatically".
