Reiterating solidarity during these crucial times and supporting with needful aid as part of an effort to help mitigate the effects of the quake, Globalpharma has shipped the medical supplies in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent.
“As a responsible pharmaceutical company, our commitment to society is unwavering and is even more important in times of humanitarian crisis and in line with this, Globalpharma’s efforts have been aligned with UAE’s response to the crisis and are aimed at strengthening partnerships with individuals and other local, regional and international organisations to offer as much support as possible to the victims. We have initiated the supply of essential medicines through Emirates Red Crescent and shall continue to assess the situation and to evaluate what additional assistance we can provide as a pharmaceutical company”, said Mohammed Saeed Al Raqbani, General Manager, Dubai Investments Industries and Director of Globalpharma.
