Neopharma, the Abu Dhabi based pharmaceutical company and NMC Group, with strategic interests in diverse fields ranging from healthcare and trading, to financial and business services, have together come forward with a comprehensive medical aid for the quake hit areas of Pakistan.
On October 18th, three truckloads full of medicines and medical equipment were handed over to the Pakistan embassy at Abu Dhabi.
Dr. B R Shetty, Managing Director & CEO, handed over the relief package to Mr. Akthar Sulehri, the Pakistan Deputy Ambassador to UAE. Expressing profound grief on the recent devastating event, Dr. B R Shetty announced full fledged support measures to the victims. Even though there are adequate medical professionals in Pakistan, Dr. B R Shetty has extended medical professional support from the NMC hospitals to be deputed in Pakistan as and when required.
Valued at AED 1.1 million, the consignment includes crucial items such as pharmaceuticals, bandages, orthopaedic equipment and wheel chairs.
The medical consignment includes drugs that would be urgently required such as antibiotics, fever and pain relief medicines. This donation acquires further significance as the consignment contains more than 12,000 bottles of Neopharma’s paracetamol suspension for the exclusive use in children.
