As one of Turkey’s leading industrial groups, Kibar Holding supports our country in the fight it puts up in solidarity against the coronavirus outbreak, which continues to affect the entire world. In addition to its assistance to the Ministry of Health and hospitals and its donation to the campaign called “We are self-sufficient, Turkey,” Kibar Holding has implemented new practices for vehicle owners and healthcare providers with Hyundai Assan, one of its group companies.
Kibar Holding supports Turkey’s fight against the coronavirus. Noting that they have always been sensitive to social problems and taken responsibility throughout their history of nearly 50 years, Ali Kibar, Chairman of Kibar Holding, said, “With our 22 companies, we support our country’s fight against the coronavirus outbreak, which has spread from China to almost the entire world and affects our country significantly. Large groups like us have an important role to play in this issue. As Kibar Group, we have always been sensitive to social problems and tried to go the extra mile. We will continue to provide as much support as possible. I believe that we will overcome these difficult times through cooperation as soon as possible.”
Procurement of medications approved by the Ministry of Health from Korea
As part of the fight against the coronavirus, Hyundai Assan, one of Kibar Holding’s affiliates, is bringing approximately 1.1 million doses of medications approved by the Ministry of Health from Korea to Turkey on a private airplane in cooperation with the Embassy of Korea with the approval of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 600,000 doses of medications arrived at the beginning of the week, and the rest are expected to arrive on April 17. These medications will be used to treat approximately 80,000 patients.
In addition, the Kibar Foundation met the needs of Cerrahpaşa Faculty of Medicine and Kartal State Hospital for medical equipment and devices.
