– Provide medical supplies to Dialogue and Development Commission, Delhi
New Delhi, 23rd July : Six South Korean companies helped the Delhi government with medical equipments and other supplies on Friday. The medical supplies consist of Oxygen Concentrator with nasal cannula (LE Corp.), 10,000 Personal Protective Gowns – PPE (Wallan Bio), 200KG of Santizing Material (G-Sol), 60,000 high-quality KF94 masks (Siheontech, GAONTech), and 100 Pulse Oximeters (MTEC Global). These will be distributed to government hospitals and public health facilities in Delhi that are in need of help in the event of 3rd Covid wave.
The entire proceedings were facilitated by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), India’s apex trade promotion body.
Ramping up its efforts against possible 3rd wave of Corona virus which seems to knock doors in India, the Korean companies G-Sol Corporation, Wallan Biotech, LE Corporation, Siheontech, GAONTech, MTEC Global with the support of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA), the government of Republic of Korea in India handed over the supplies to the authorities at the Dialogue and Development Commission (DDC). The CII Secretariat was also present on the occasion.
DDC is a premier think-tank of the Government of NCT of Delhi which advises the government in finding sustainable, people-centric solutions to the critical development challenges facing Delhi. To fulfil its mandate, the DDC follows an ‘outside-in’ and ‘inside-out’ strategy.
Mr. Jasmine Shah, Vice Chairman- DDC, Govt. of NCT of Delhi said, “These medical equipments and supplies will be distributed to medical facilities or institutions in Delhi that are in need of helping hands. We sincerely appreciate KOTRA and Korean companies for their support and look forward for more such participation in our fight against the deadly disease.”
Mr. Jeoung Yeol Yu, President – KOTRA, has been carrying out ‘CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and ESG (Environmental Social Governance) Emergency Medical and Health Support Project’ in India to combat Covid-19 pandemic by facilitating Korean Manufacturers of Covid-19 medical products and PPE kits by bringing their donations to India for the Indian government, institutions and corporate entities.
“As a second step, we decided to support Indian nationals through Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi and CII Foundation, and finally we will donate 8,000 KF masks more to Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS) for helping Indian nationals” said Mr. Moon Young Kim, Managing Director-KOTRA Southwest Asia.
In its bid to motivate more and more Korean companies to come forward and offer their donations to India, KOTRA is also providing incentives to such companies. KOTRA is bearing the shipping cost of the medical supplies which are imported to India and donating them to various agencies.
Last week, 2 Korean companies Yeil Healthcare and Hwasung Industry donated oxygen concentrators fitted with Oxymeters (Yeil), and safety suit sets to the United Korean Associations for the Korean community in India.
