The National Academy of Medical Sciences has received an oxygen plant from Nabil Bank (Bir Hospital). During a ceremonial occasion held today, the plant was presented to Bir Hospital. On the 37th anniversary of the Bank, the plant was handed off. On the 18th of May 2021, the Bank and the National Academy of Medical Sciences (NAMS), Bir Hospital, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the installation of an oxygen plant on the Bir Hospital grounds. According to the agreement, Nabil Bank will give financial assistance for the construction of an oxygen plant with a capacity of 50 Nm3/H, and Bir Hospital will supply the necessary space. The oxygen facility will have the capacity to fill 150 40-liter cylinders every day.
Many people died as a result of a lack of effective treatment and an oxygen deficit during COVID-19’s second wave. The Bank believes that the oxygen plant will help respond to the third wave by giving oxygen to patients, as some sections of the world are experiencing it.
The Bank has been involved in several CSR actions to help prevent and contain the continuing epidemic since the outset, including a financial contribution of NPR 60 million to the Nepal Government’s Corona Relief Fund. Similarly, the Bank funded the “Strengthening Local Health Systems for Preparedness and Response to Pandemics” initiative, which provided training to 330 health practitioners from all seven provinces. The Bank has now stepped forward to establish an oxygen plant at Bir Hospital in order to help alleviate the oxygen shortage and prepare for the worst-case situation in the third wave of COVID.
