PPD and ENNA Donate Respirators to KBC Zagreb Amid Coronavirus Crisis

The coronavirus crisis is gripping public health as much as it is the global economy. With threats of mass lay-offs possible in Croatia alone over the next three months, it’s difficult to see what road this unprecedented situation with the COVID-19 outbreak could go down.

One good thing that has come out of all of this, is that the good hearts of many have come to the surface. Many Croatian companies have done their bit to donate to those in need, even in times of financial worry and a standstill for a lot of businesses, primarily those operating within the Croatian tourism industry, the country’s strongest economic branch.

Infobip, a wildly successful Croatian IT company, has also made generous donations. With Dukat, a company operating within the food sector, making sure Zagreb’s more vulnerable citizens, shaken from the recent earthquakes as well as the pandemic, are taken care of.

These aren’t the only companies stepping up in this time of great need, and as Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of March, 2020, the company Prvo plinarsko društvo (First Gas Company, or PPD), which operates within the Energia naturalis group (ENNA), recently generously donated seven respirators to KBC Zagreb to help them cope with weaker patients needing them during the coronavirus pandemic.

”The intention of the Energia naturalis group is to try to buy and donate a total of fifty respirators to Croatian hospitals, and the management of the group has directed its strength and abilities towards finding and purchasing them. The respirators purchased should be delivered to KBC Zagreb by the end of the week,” a statement from the company read.

In addition to the measures taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus and protect its own employees, the ENNA group is actively fighting the “corona crisis” here in Croatia.

”It certainly isn’t easy to get hold of a respirator at the moment, but we are convinced it is possible. We’re also sure that many individuals and companies are doing the best they can to help in the situation we all find ourselves in, and in this way, with our knowledge and capabilities, we’re joining their efforts,” the company stated.
