Khorog, Tajikistan, 18 June 2020 - In response to an urgent appeal for medicine from the Central Regional Hospital in Khorog (Tajikistan) to treat patients suffering from Covid-19, employees of the University of Central Asia (UCA) donated medicine and related supplies.
In accepting the donation from the Covid-19 Solidarity Fund, the Chief Medical Officer of the Hospital, Davlatbekov Saidbek, spoke about the “timely humanitarian support which will help us save lives”.
Well over 100 employees have donated one or more day’s salary to a Covid-19 Solidarity Fund that provides food and medical supplies to families and hospitals in dire need as a result of the pandemic.
To help mitigate the spread of Covid-19, UCA has also set up facilities for 50 observation beds on the grounds of its Khorog campus. With rising cases of patients testing positive for Covid-19 in Khorog, and increased risk to front line health workers, UCA is also arranging personal protective equipment (PPEs) for doctors and nurses.
