Palm City supports International Medical Corps' work in Libya


 

Palm City has recently made a financial donation to aid the International Medical Corps in their efforts in Misurata to restore medical facilities and supplies to the Libyan people. Palm City’s Chairman, Mr Reuben Xuereb, said that throughout the conflict, Palm City remained open and operational.  “Notwithstanding the challenges, we wanted to ensure that we could continue to provide a safe workplace for our employees.” During Libya's conflict, health infrastructure in several regions including Misurata suffered significant damage from looting and destruction of health facilities. As health systems slowly get back online, urgent gaps in supplies and medicines remain a key obstacle to regular provision of health services. In view of this Palm City reached out to the Libyans through the international organisation IMC  - International Medical Corps. Mr Rabih T. Torbay – VP International Ops – IMC stated that “With funds from Palm City, International Medical Corps will provide essential medicines and medical supplies to the Polyclinic health facility in Misurata, Libya. Funds will enable the procurement and transportation of critical medicines and supplies requested by the administrator of the facility. The Polyclinic is the main health facility in the Misurata, serving a catchment population of more than 500,000 people. The items requested are currently in short supply, and not immediately available through the Ministry of Health.”
