The National Beverage Company Coca-Cola/Cappy donated to Al-Shifaa Hospital in Gaza Strip and Martyr Thabet Thabet Hospital in Tulkarem in line with its commitment to contribute to empowering the Palestinian hospitals to improve their treatment services provided to the citizens.
The National Beverage Company donated beds for the Emergency Room and Internal Medicine Department at Al-Shifaa and many state-of-the-art chairs convertible to beds so that patients' companions can use them at the Martyr Thabet Thabet Hospital.
Mr. Imad al-Hindi, General Manager of the National Beverage Company Coca-Cola/Cappy, said: "this donation responds to the growing needs of the Palestinian hospitals for medical equipment and supplies and amenities for patients and their companions, especially with the growing number of patients and visitors.
He noted: "this contribution comes in line with the priorities of the company supporting the health sector and other important and critical sectors in all of the Palestinian governorates out of our commitment to fulfil our patriot and ethical duty towards our people. Therefore, the company follows up all the time on the implementation of support projects in order to contribute in improving health facilities to reach the highest level in health services provided to the patients.”
Mr. al-Hindi added that “the health sector is one of the key sectors touching the daily life of the Palestinian people, noting that the recent aggressions against Gaza Strip targeted the health sector and caused damages to many hospitals which already suffer the shortage of medical supplies and beds required to treat the patients."
He confirmed that "NBC did not ignore its role in supporting the health sector and hospitals, so it has continued the projects supporting many of the health centers and hospitals and it has launched an initiative to establish libraries for the child patients in public hospitals amounting to 10 libraries established in the West Bank and Gaza hospitals.  This project aims at alleviating the pains of children and giving them the opportunity to use the treatment period in learning and interaction with each other by providing education and entertainment means which supports the physicians' efforts to improve the psychological resistance of children to better respond to treatment.
Dr. Rami Al-Abadella, Internal Medicine Unit Director at Al-Shifaa Medical Complex in Gaza commended the donations made by the National Beverage Company Coca-Cola/Cappy. He indicated that the destruction sustained by the health sector in Gaza as a result of the last Israeli aggression and the ongoing siege of the Gaza Strip. Dr. Rami said: "efforts made by the private companies to support the health sector in Gaza and meet the needs of Al-Shifaa Hospital in particular reflect the commitment by such companies to alleviate the suffering of our people in the Strip".  He emphasized the importance of synergizing the efforts to improve the medial service level and to increase the hospitals' capacity to receive patients and visitors.
Dr. Eyad El-Akkad, Medical Director of Martyr Thabet Thabet Hospital, praised the generous gesture of NBC toward the hospital noting "we are optimistic about the continuous and effective role of the company which is dedicated to contribute in catering to the medical sector which will in turn help us provide better services to the patients”. Dr. El-Akkad noted that the donation presented by the company of beds for patients’ companions, reveal how much the company takes care of all groups of service recipients and the various needs and requirements to improve the standard of medical services where companions suffer as much as the patients feeling tension and concern for the health and life of their children and relatives who receive treatment.”
“The hospital upholds a vision and mission in line with our strategy to enhance the quality of health services in conformity with the scientific and technological advancement, and meeting the needs of health service recipients and ensuring their safety and security toward sustainable, safe and high quality health services”, Dr. El-Akkad added.
