KATHMANDU: The French Government (French Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Crisis and Support Center) and IDEMIA, global leader in Augmented Identity, have joined hands together to send spare parts for oxygen plants built by a French company, NOVAIR, to help Nepal combat the Covid-19 crisis.

“As many places in the world are still seeing a surge in the number of Covid-19 cases, preparation plays a key role in saving lives. In this regard, the French Government and IDEMIA have jointly sponsored to donate Euros 48,000 worth of spare parts for oxygen plants built by NOVAIR to 8 (eight) hospitals so that they would be able to ensure a continuous function of these life-saving machines,” said the French Ambassador to Nepal François-Xavier Léger during the handover ceremony in Kathmandu Wednesday.

“IDEMIA is very honored to be part of this solidarity project, an important step towards the achievement of our CSR IMPACT pillars to uphold and step up our support for local communities, as it has a long-standing relation with the Nepali Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Home Affairs. This is a great opportunity to thank the Nepali Government and to convey the message that we are all in this situation together”, said Tim Ferris, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, IDEMIA

The hospitals benefiting from this operation are: Nepalgunj Medical College (Kohalpur), Surkhet Pradeshik Hospital (Surkhet), Fewa City Hospital (Pokhara), Okhaldhunga Community Hospital (Okhaldhunga), Fishtail Hospital (Pokhara), Lumbini Pradeshik Hospital (Butwal), Dadeldhura Pradeshik Hospital (Dadeldhura), and Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (Maharajgunj, Kathmandu).

The spare parts were handed over to the representatives of the hospitals by Ambassador Léger.
