06 Apr Durham Capital Investments announce plans for community help during the COVID-19 crisis
The global COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global economy in an unprecedented way and has heaped enormous pressure on every section of society around the world. Here at Durham Capital Investments we understand the difficulties faced by our community in this time. In line with our Community Responsibility charter, we are determined to use our resources and experience to alleviate some of the hardship on the people within our community, especially for the relief workers who are trying to deal with this crisis in the present time.
First and foremost, we understand the critical and brave work being carried out under extreme pressure by the frontline doctors in the healthcare industry trying to save the lives of the people who have been infected with coronavirus, and we want to help. To this end, we have donated over 200,000 masks and 400,000 pairs of surgical gloves to be distributed to hospitals in Hong Kong and the surrounding provinces. We are also in discussion with various key manufacturers of Ultraviolet Light Machines in order to help to increase their production levels, and also ventilator manufacturers in an effort to decrease the delivery time of these life-saving machines.
We have also launched a Healthcare Relief Fund to provide finances for the local healthcare industry and the charity relief organizations who are working hard in an effort to help the communities which have been hit the hardest in this time of crisis. In addition, we are in discussion with several local charities in order to find ways to assist them through funds, equipment, and logistical support, and thus enable them to perform their tasks unburdened by financial constraints.
These are extraordinary times and unprecedented circumstances which call upon all of us as individuals and as a community to do what we can to help those around us in need of assistance. We must all find ways in which we can help and support others. We are extremely proud to be able to say that all of our employees here at Durham Capital Investments have pledged to make charitable contributions to the healthcare workers who are on the frontline of this unique global war.
We hope that you will all endeavor to deal with this situation with as much responsibility as possible, and we wish everyone luck with the future.
