Solidarity fingerprint

If something shows us the pandemic we are going through today is that  the real idols  should not be athletes or artists: they are  doctors ,  nurses ,  cops ,   scientists,  teachers . Priorities are rearranged and we see things to their real extent. However, it is good to know that when help is most needed, those who earn fortunes from their work year after year have the heart to remember those who spend it worse.  Lionel Messi is an example of that.  In the match against the  coronavirus , the rosarino got a goal.

Through the Messi Foundation, the player joined the campaign “  Together for Argentina Health  ” promoted by the Garrahan Foundation . The initiative aims to acquire protection supplies for health professionals and equipment to cope with the pandemic.

Messi donated  half a million euros  to the Garrahan Foundation to collaborate with this campaign. That was used to buy  respirators  and equipment for different hospitals. One of the beneficiaries, in this case, is from his beloved hometown of Rosario.

These are the hospitals that acquired equipment thanks to the collaboration of Messi:

  • José María Cullen (Santa Fe): 4 transfer respirators, 2 multiparameter monitors and 10 infusion pumps.
  • Provincial del Centenario (Rosario): 4 transfer respirators, 2 multiparameter monitors and 10 infusion pumps.
  • of Paediatrics Garrahan (CABA): 2 multiparameter monitors and 3 computers.
  • from the Bicentennial of Esteban Echeverría (Buenos Aires): 16 infusion pumps.
  • High Complexity Cuenca Alta (Cañuelas, Buenos Aires): 10 infusion pumps.
  • Area of Acute General Constituents “Manuel Belgrano” (San Martin, Buenos Aires): 4 infusion pumps.
  • Modular Hospitals of the Office of Remote Communication (OCD) and Telehealth: 10 computers.

According to a statement released by the institution, also made the acquisition of other inputs that were already imported and are ready to arrive: 5 high-frequency ventilation equipment and  protective elements  for the professionals.
