"We are proud to join forces with United Airlines in this effort to deliver critically needed equipment to hospitals on the front lines of this outbreak," said Rabih Torbay, President and CEO of Project HOPE. "United wanted to ensure their relief efforts in China would meet the most pressing needs identified by experts on the ground, and Project HOPE's team in China has been working to support health workers and health systems for over 35 years. We know what a lifesaving difference these ventilators will makea??not only during this outbreak but long into the future.""It's important to our employees around the globe that we're there for the communities where we live, work and fly," said Sharon Grant, vice president and chief community engagement officer at United Airlines. "As we looked for ways to support the community in China during this critical time, it was clear that Project HOPE had the infrastructure on the ground to ensure our donation reached the people who will need it most." A ventilator is a critical piece of equipment used in medical facilities worldwide. Having access to a ventilator can mean the difference between life and death for patients with COVID-19, but a ventilator can also ensure a patient continues breathing during surgery or treat a serious lung disease or other condition that affects normal breathing.
