The Constantinian Order Charity Onlus, a non-profit organization of the Constantinian Order of Saint George, donated to the Local Health Unit 2 in Abruzzo a supply of 1.200 masks and a contribution of € 8.000 for the purchase of personal protective equipment for a total of € 15.000. “During the fundraising that I had decided to launch for hospitals with fewer resources, we have decided to help the territories where there was a greater urgency to intervene against the spread of the coronavirus” – explains Prince Charles of Bourbon Two Sicilies, who also adds – “because of the evolution of the pandemic, our attention, in this phase 2, is directed to all the projects which also allow to indirectly alleviate the pressure on hospitals. We have particularly appreciated the project implemented within the Local Health Unit of Lanciano Vasto and Chieti for the management of the emergency, that allows home care of patients who do not require hospitalization through a “Home Aid” service set up, performed by highly qualified staff”.
“For this reason – concludes the Head of the Royal House – we are committed to provide personal protective equipment to the staff of the structure, by offering FFP2 masks and an additional contribution for the supply of essential tools, in order to contribute to the development and support of this important service”.
“I thank the Order for its sensitivity and attention given to our staff. For the duration of the emergency, the protection of our staff was our great concern, we resorted to all the commercial channels, even abroad, to assure our company the necessary supply of protective devices, even though there are lots of difficulties – declares Mr. Thomas Schael, General Director of the Local Health Unit Lanciano Vasto Chieti, who underlines – “It is a precious and above all ethical gift, because it focuses on the safety of our operators, who have carried out a valuable work and keep on being on the front line for coronavirus management”.
