Hartford, Connecticut, September 08, 2022

Russell and Dawson Inc., an A/E/C firm and AORBIS Inc., the supplier of building products donated more than US$550,000 worth PPE supplies to Jamaican Health System through collaboration with Hartford HealthCare. The donation includes KN-95 masks, 3-ply masks, gloves, gowns and hand sanitizer — items which are still in great need in Jamaica.

Hartford HealthCare has forged a strong partnership with the Jamaican Health System since the start of the pandemic by facilitating donation of equipment & supplies and exchange of technology and information. “We shared the need of PPE supplies with local businesses, we are so grateful to leadership of Chirag Thaker & Jalpa Thaker in making this donation to Jamaican Healthcare System,” said Bimal Patel, President of Hartford Hospital and Senior Vice President, Hartford HealthCare.

“With the on-going pandemic, we were looking to donate PPE kits where they would be most valuable and useful. After learning about this excellent opportunity from Keith Grant, Sr. System Director for Infection Prevention at Hartford Healthcare, we decided to support the Jamaican Health System by making a contribution for the benefit of an island” said Chirag Thaker, President, Russell and Dawson Inc. and AORBIS Inc.

Chris Benjamin, Community Relations Officer for the Jamaican Consulate in New York City said “This donation will go a long way in alleviating the difficulties we are still having in Jamaica because of the pandemic. These PPE will be distributed to several hospitals on the island. It will help ensure there is an adequate supply of PPE, especially in the areas of greatest need,”
