Community engagement – helping people stay healthy in Algeria
Petrofac has purchased and donated medical equipment as part of its latest campaign to help the Algerian people cope with the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Company imported and distributed 220 oxygen concentrators in the country. Of these, 180 units were provided for the benefit of the Ministry of Health in Algiers, and another 40 units were sent for use by the Ministry of Health in Illizi province, southern Algeria. . Essential equipment will support the health and well-being of communities that live and work locally.
Manish Bhojwani, Country Manager of Petrofac in Algeria said:
âWe want to help people continue to respond to the effects of the pandemic. This will have a positive impact on a number of communities, helping people stay healthy. It has been a privilege to work with the Ministry of Health in Algiers and the Ministry of Health in Illizi, to support people through our latest initiative. ”
Petrofac has been providing major projects, engineering services and training the local workforce in Algeria for over 20 years. Our first office in Algiers opened in 1999, with our first major contract through a project in Ohanet. The Company has continued to expand its presence and more than 85% of our workforce in the country is of local origin.
Over the years, Petrofac has developed a strong bond with its communities and has remained committed to giving back to people wherever it operates. In 2020, the Petrofac Tinrhert field development project team also provided essential medical equipment, including defibrillators, to the nearby In Amenas hospital. In collaboration with the Municipality of Bordj Omar Driss, we have also recently made several donations to support the village of Tin Fouy, located near our site of the Ain Tsila Project.
