Okta Started Equipping the Intensive Care Unit at the Children’s Clinic July 9, 2014

The first phase of Okta’s campaign “Chance for Life” has been completed. Pulse meters, aspirators and perfusors are already installed and functioning at the Intensive Care Department at the Children’s Clinic.

 “This is the first part of Okta’s donation. Furthermore, we will continue to raise awareness  and to gather donations from citizens, organizations and other companies. We also have the support of more than 9000 followers on the social media and we have received donations from hundreds. I am confident that, by the end of this year we will gather substantial funds, which together with Okta’s significant donation, will have a big impact on the babies’ welfare and boost the work of the medical personnel in this unit. Personally, I am very satisfied with the reactions from the broader public and very proud of the results achieved so far”, said Victor Papaconstantinou, Chief Executive Officer of Okta.

Okta’s campaign “Chance for Life”, will provide necessary equipment to the Intensive Care Unit of Children’s Clinic that will last until the end of the year. The number of newborns arriving at this Unit is increased, while its capacity remains the same, causing significant problems to the team of very dedicated doctors operating there. The Intensive Care unit needs significant investment which, at the time being, cannot be funded by the Clinic alone.

 “We need to provide the appropriate medical care and aid to each baby. This donation from Okta is significantly important. Our needs are big. We hope that other companies and citizens will follow OKTA’s steps”, said Aspazija Sofijanova, Director of the Children’s Clinic in Skopje.

So far, a lot of celebrities have joined the initiative and gave their support by buying the campaign’s trademark – the bracelet Chance for Life. The bracelets are available at many locations in Skopje, as well as on Okta’s petrol stations, with a symbolic price. Okta also contributes an amount for every litter of fuel purchased at its petrol stations.
