Dear All,

We are extremely pleased to share with you what, in our own small way, we have managed to do for our community.
Thanks to our donation of 100,000 Euro for the Coronavirus emergency, five proning beds have been purchased and delivered to the hospitals of Cremona and Crema.“These are very special beds that assist in the treatment of patients with severe respiratory failure. They are in fact actual therapeutic tools that promote the patient’s recovery in a shorter time. They make the work of healthcare professionals easier, promote patient comfort and reduce the risk of bedsores to a minimum. State-of-the-art equipment that will be useful to everyone”, said Marina Zanotti, Head of Arco Onlus Fundraiser.

“I wish to thank Ocrim – aid Matteo Tedoldi, chairman of Arco Onlus - which responded to our appeal and made a very substantial donation that allowed us to donate these very sophisticated beds, not only in Cremona but also in Crema. Covid-19 has hit our area very badly, and it has reacted with tangible, extreme generosity and this is an example”.

“We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish together. In an emergency like this, the least we could do was support our healthcare system and the incredible work carried out by our doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals. Thanks to the strong bond that the Arco Onlus association has with the region, we have managed to make the donation immediately accessible”, said Ocrim CEO, Alberto Antolini.
