With the current situation in West Africa regarding the Ebola Virus at crisis point, leading plastics manufacturer Angloplas are helping to kit out hospitals in the worst affected areas in Sierra Leone. Tollesbury-based Angloplas were approached by the Scotia Aid charity to support the cause by providing a range of glove and apron dispensers which are made from the world’s first proven Antimicrobial PVC with BioCote® silver ion technology. For hospitals, this helps reduce the risk of cross infection by stopping the growth of bacteria and mould.
West Africa has experienced an unprecedented outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease which is both untreatable and deadly. It is continuing to spread further West into Sierra Leone and is now at pandemic levels. In response, Scotia Aid has launched an urgent appeal for funds and to source medical supplies to help in the massive effort to stop the spreading of the disease.
Fraser and Lloyd Stock, Directors of Angloplas say;
“We are only too pleased to donate our dispensers and support Scotia Aid and the people of Sierra Leone in their fight against this highly infectious and deadly disease. As a company who works with the NHS, private hospitals and care homes on infection control we knew that our products will help in Scotia Aid’s numerous hospitals across the country.”
Lynne Green, Procurement Assistant for Scotia Aid says:
“Unfortunately at present there is no known cure or treatment for this disease – so education and containment are the only solutions to this terrifying situation. We are delighted that companies such as Angloplas are choosing to help on a practical level by donating goods that will be used on the frontline in the fight against this dreadful disease.
