Ori Watermann, CEO of SkyVision, said, “We have strong ties across the African continent with partners and regional offices throughout the region. It is a troubling time for our customers and businesses alike. Therefore, SkyVision stepped forward and took the opportunity to help.”

The National Commission was set up by the Guinean government to respond to Ebola outbreak across the region.

The commission also set up emergency units across hospitals in the west African country and trained staff to manage the patients and to reach out to those that had come in to contact with the infected people.

Bangoura, chairman of National Commission, added, “We are grateful for the invaluable help that SkyVision has given to assist the fight against Ebola. The fund will be used to cover expenses and the needs of Ebola patients and affected families.”

The National Commission has reportedly invested in ambulances, hospital equipment and detection units for airports, which are capable of detecting fever in passengers passing through them.

According to Aboubacar Kourouma, GM of SkyVision Guinea, the donation is proof of the company’s commitment to providing wellness to communities across Africa. “Our corporate social responsibility engages us to create and sustain positive values in areas we operate in. We hope the affected areas by the Ebola virus will soon recover from this epidemic,” Kourouma added.
