Koura Donates 10,000 Inhalers to the Government of Maharashtra, India (Haffkine Institute)
Koura, part of Orbia Advance Corporation S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: ORBIA*), makes a successful donation delivery of 10,000 medical grade inhalers to the Government of Maharashtra, India.
The delivery of these inhalers will help Indian authorities maintain critical equipment supplies at a time when need and demand for these essential devices is increasing. Patients who have contracted COVID-19 are becoming reliant on pMDIs (pressurized metered-dose inhalers), as a vital method for relieving breathing difficulties.
Koura, one of the businesses of Orbia, carries out activities that are essential to confront the current crisis. 80% of the world’s pMDIs used by 100 million people daily for asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are powered by the propellant gas manufactured by the company.
As part of a purpose-driven community of businesses, Koura is helping to advance life around the world and help tackle pressing global challenges and this donation is part of a wider effort by Orbia in seeking to contribute to the efforts being made by authorities to fight the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic through providing essential support and solutions.
