Flen Health supports Lebanon by donating wound healing ointment in the value of 270.000 €

Luxembourg, 9th August 2020: Flen Health expresses its solidarity to Lebanon by donating Flaminal® Hydro and Flaminal® Forte in the value of 270.000 € to help thousands of injured people after two explosions hit the city of Beirut on 4th August 2020.

As several hospitals have been destroyed or are only half operational, numerous healthcare professionals in operational medical facilities face the challenge of taking efficient care of the many injured and also having to deal with the effects of COVID-19.

As a company specialized in wound healing, we want to help and contribute to better patient care where needed. Flaminal® can be used by healthcare professionals as well as patients to quickly and efficiently treat severe wounds caused by the explosions”, says Simon Eaves, International Business Developer at Flen Health.

Now, that the donation is approved by the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Beirut, Flen Health is able to ship the needed goods via air transport from Luxembourg directly to the MOH. Subsequently, the wound healing ointment can be distributed to all government hospitals.

Flen Health’s local contact will be able to be in touch with the healthcare professionals in Lebanon to provide on the ground support. “The donation will go to governmental hospitals in all Lebanon. Due to the catastrophe in Beirut and lots of injuries and burn cases hospitals are in need of medical donations. No one knows how the current situation evolves but with the help we receive we can clearly move one step forward and improve wound care where needed the most”, explains Ola Hajjeh, Pharmacist at Hajjeh Pharmacy in Lebanon.
