MOH, Vale Oman enter quarantine centre furnishing deal

Vale Oman has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Health to furnish the Drug Rehabilitation Centre in Sohar to be operated by the ministry as quarantine and isolation space for people with COVID-19 during the outbreak.

The centre was established by Jusoor Foundation as a Drug Rehabilitation Centre and was funded by the three-founding companies of Jusoor; OQ, Vale and Sohar Aluminum.

The centre will be equipped at an estimated cost of $400,000 after a thorough risk and capacity assessment for all rquirements including medical equipment/facilities and basic amenities.

The assessment will be conducted alongwith the Ministry of Health and will take into account the latest available information on transmission and severity characteristics of COVID-19 as well as impact of containment measures at local, nationaland international levels.

This cooperation translates the company’s belief in the importance of supporting the health sector during the outbreak of this pandemic and driven by its social responsibility to support the local communities.

Adriano Mansk, Vale Oman CEO said, “Driven by our core value “Life matters most”, we firmly believe in our social commitments to meet the national call in defeating this global pandemic and join the efforts with other public and private entities.”

“We also commend the non-stopping efforts of the frontlines in the public and private institutions under the guidance of the State Supreme Committee and we reaffirm our commitment to contribute to the socio-economic development of the Sultanate of Oman”, Mansk added.

Since the inauguration of its operations in Oman in 2011, Vale has worked closely with all stakeholders to contribute to the sustainable development and boost the national economy, starting from the establishment of Jusoor Foundation, extended to the implementation of series of sustainable social investments and volunteering programmes under the company’s pillars of sustainability; Environment, Health and Education, Sports and Culture and Entrepreneurship.
