Mayhoola donates €2 million to Italian struggle with Covid-19

Mar 23, 2020

Mayhoola, (the investment group controlling Valentino, Balmain and Pal Zileri and operated by the Qatari royal family) is the latest group to aid Italy in its struggle with Covid-19. It plans to donate €1 million to a key Milan hospital, and an equal amount to support the main Italian organization which handles national emergencies.

“Mayhoola is determined to support two different projects related to the emergency situation that Italy is currently facing,” the firm said in a release.
In its first step, Mayhoola intends on improving “the efficiency and security” of the Intensive Care Treatment Unit (ICU) at ASST Fatebenefratelli Sacco Hospital in Milan. 

Milan has been one of the cities worst hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and Sacco Hospital has been inundated by infected patients requiring intensive care treatments. 
The Qatari group will spend €1 million on a negative pressure ventilation installation, allowing medical staff to assist coronavirus patients in a safer environment. The installation is designed to reduce infections amongst the health care staff and to guarantee safety measures for all those working in intensive care units. 
“We are very close to the Italian population and we are constantly monitoring the evolution of the pandemic in the country. We are pained to see what is happening in Milan and we strongly hope that this decisive action can help the doctors and their teams of Sacco Hospital,” Mayhoola said in its statement.
Mayhoola worked with Alessandro Visconti, general manager of Sacco Hospital, and Dr. Emanuele Catena, in charge of the Anesthesia Department and Intensive Care Unit (ICU), in order to entirely cover all expenses.
“We really would like to thank Mayhoola, Valentino, Balmain and Pal Zileri for their generosity and for having prioritized the health and safety of those fighting against this ongoing pandemic,” said Visconti and Catena.  
In a related step, Mayhoola will make a second €1 million donation to the Protezione Civile Italiana in order to support all of its efforts in many Italian regions.  The Protezione Civile Italiana (or Civil Protection Department) is the main Italian government organization that handles prediction, prevention and management of national emergencies.
“Our production plants and offices are widespread across the diverse and beautiful Italian regions: Lazio, Lombardy, Piedmont, Veneto, Tuscany and many others. It’s absolutely remarkable how Protezione Civile Italiana is operating within the entire country and the way in which it continuously stands behind the needs of Italian citizens,” Mayhoola added.
