OMV Yemen supports local stakeholder medical preparedness to tackle COVID 19 pandemic
Years of ongoing conflict in Yemen has caused the country’s health system to near a state of collapse. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, international organizations have been warning that without humanitarian support this pandemic would be disastrous for the Yemeni population. OMV responded to this call and provided the much needed support to increase the treatment capacities of Yemen’s health services. OMV donated COVID-19 related medical equipment and medical supplies, including hospital and ICU beds, ventilators and associated equipment. Additionally, our donation included disinfectant and personal protective equipment (PPE) for the medical workers.
