The Korean community in the sultanate along with four prominent Korean companies on Wednesday donated 20,000 pieces of Korean face masks to The Royal Hospital.
The donation serves as a symbol of solidarity and friendship stemming from the entire Korean community in the sultanate to support the noble endeavour of the sultanate in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic under the wise leadership of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik.
The Korean community in the sultanate provided 10,000 pieces of disposable masks while four Korean companies, namely Daeah International, Haejoo ENC, Samsung Engineering, and LG International, contributed 7,000 pieces of KF94 masks and 3,000 pieces of Nano masks.
These face masks are well-known for their enhanced protection against the virus.
It should be noted that wearing masks will remain as one of the most effective measures to keep people away from the disease, even after the roll-out of the vaccine. Against this backdrop, the Korean community and the Korean firms decided to donate the Korean face masks to the sultanate in order to take part in the sultanate’s unwavering efforts to curb the spread of the virus and bring normal life back to the citizens and the residents.
Together, the Korean community and the Korean companies have supported the sultanate’s march towards the social and economic growth by actively participating in a number of development projects throughout the sultanate.
Through this mask donation, they have reaffirmed their strong commitment to deepening ties with the Omani society by boosting their contribution to the sultanate.
The donation was coordinated by the office of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) in Muscat with the cordial support of the Ministry of Health of the sultanate and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to the sultanate.
