OXYMAT Christmas donations
Each Christmas, OXYMAT makes a donation to a selected hospital in a developing country. The main objective of this type of donation is to enable hospitals to produce their own affordable medical oxygen on-site.
Children’s cancer hospital in Egypt (our first donation)
Our very first Christmas donation of an oxygen generator unit was made in 2013. This was a very special charity to a children’s cancer hospital (Hospital “57357”) in Cairo, Egypt.
Hospital 57357 is a non-profit hospital treating children with cancer. All children receive a complete treatment which includes surgery and therapy at no charge. The duration of a cancer treatment can vary from 3 to 6 years depending on the case.
Hospital 57357 treats 45% of the children suffering from cancer in Egypt with a complete cure rate of 73%.
The hospital was previously using normal liquid and bottled oxygen, resulting in high costs and resources. OXYMAT approached the hospital and donated a 25m3/hr oxygen generator system with 95% purity. The system is in operation and supplies oxygen to all 350 beds in the hospital.
Our donation was realised in close cooperation with our long-term, successful distributor in Egypt, Atlasco Egypt, who provides the hospital with full air package and relevant receiver vessels. Installation of this medical oxygen unit was made in June 2014.
We believe we can make a difference, and we are very serious about our corporate social responsibility.
We take great pride in being a part of two small local communities in Denmark and Slovakia. Besides creating many jobs for the locals, we also see ourselves as partners of the village when it comes to supporting the local school, kindergarten and clinics.
In Slovakia the government allows each taxpayer to donate 2% of their yearly paid taxes to charities, schools and organizations. We are proud that our employees value this option and donate to local organisations and charities of their choice.
Responsibility for the environment
Production of gas is an energy-intensive process. Through constant development we are supplying the most energy-efficient gas generators on the market, thereby keeping CO2 emissions to a minimum.
Furthermore, we are producing a large part of our factory’s energy by means of solar panels on the roof. The rest of the electricity used at our facility is sourced from green energy.
