Rubis Dominica is playing their part to make sure first responders remain safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. They recently donated 2000 KN95 masks, 2000 surgical masks and 2000 surgical gloves to the Ministry of Health, Wellness and New Health Investment for distribution to the country’s frontline workers.
The official event was held at the hospital where Milton Sebastian, Account Executive, Rubis made the presentation of personal protective gear (PPE) to the Minister of Heath, the Hon. Dr. Irving McIntyre and other health officials.
Two other companies, Montreal Management Consultants Est. (MMCE) and Rak & Ray Foundation Inc also made presentations of medical supplies at the event.
Dr. McIntyre expressed his thanks to the private sector for coming on board to assist and that the donation will be very useful.
Mr. Sebastian explained that the energy company had been at the forefront of similar efforts across the region as they play their part to fight the spread of the disease.
In addition to the donation, Rubis has also enhanced their already stringent internal safety standards at their Canefield Terminal. They have also invested internally by providing service station staff with the necessary protective masks and further enhanced sanitization processes with their retailers. Signage was installed at the fuel pumps which displays vital information on how Dominicans can stay safe during the pandemic.
