As part of the measures, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. together with the companies of the KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Group became involved, among others, in the production of disinfectants (a special production line was launched by NITROERG S.A. to produce NITROSEPT liquid) or the production of protective masks and aprons (KGHM ZANAM S.A. and MERCUS Logistyka Sp. z o.o.).
In 2020, the KGHM Polska Miedź Foundation donated 20 thousand litres of Nitrosept disinfectant to hospitals, hospices and other medical facilities throughout Poland. The first donations of the liquid produced by a company from the KGHM Group were made to the staffs of medical institutions.
The KGHM Foundation also donated over PLN 1.2 million for the purchase of equipment necessary to save health and life in connection with the sudden increase in infected people, including ventilators, testing kits and oxygen dispensers. Assistance was provided to the Copper Health Centre Hospital in Lubin and the Regional Specialised Hospital in Legnica.
Batches of sterilised protective masks sewn by KGHM ZANAM S.A. and MERCUS Logistyka Sp. z o.o. were provided to those in need, including the RCZ Hospital. PHU Lubinpex Sp. z o.o., a KGHM Group company, supplied lunches to the staff of the hospital in Legnica – up to 200 lunches per day were served to the medical personnel. The KGHM Group also donated FFP2 masks to the Lower Silesian Voivode, who coordinates activities in the region aiming to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The Group also provided the Poviat Starost’s Office in Głogów with a building that can be used for quarantine purposes.
