4 April, 2020

RCB Bank Ltd has proceeded with the purchase of 12 new ventilators (medical breathing machines) from China. With the needs of the National Health System and those of the people of Cyprus in mind, the ventilators were delivered to the representatives of the Republic of Cyprus in China and have now arrived in the country with the charter flight that the authorities arranged.

It should be noted that ventilators (medical breathing machines) are in extremely high demand worldwide right now. Nevertheless, RCB, as a Cypriot bank, has worked hard in securing these much needed new equipment in order to enhance the abilities of the health system to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, and in cooperation with the relevant authorities, RCB Bank has proceeded with the purchase of medical face shields, which are manufactured in Limassol, with the well-being of the medical forces fighting the Coronavirus in the hospitals of Cyprus in mind.

Commenting on the donations, the CEO of RCB Bank Ltd Dr. Kirill Zimarin, stated: “Cyprus is our homeland and in this collective effort to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 crisis, we could not have remained passive. We therefore, took initiative from the very beginning and strove to find ventilators (medical breathing machines), which constitute a vital equipment at this difficult time. Health is priceless and we all have a duty to contribute whatever and however we can in securing that Cyprus has the necessary tools to deal with the pandemic as effectively as possible. We sincerely thank all those who have supported us in securing the medical equipment as well as the relevant authorities for their excellent cooperation. I would also like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and deep appreciation to the medical staff of Cyprus who are right now at the frontline of this surreal war. Together we can make it and we will make it!”
