Velaa Private Island has supplied all islands of N. Atoll with protective equipment such as masks and gloves.
The company provided 20,000 gloves and masks to 13 different islands in the atoll as part of the efforts against the virus.
Velaa stated that the donations accounted for the population of each island to ensure that the supply was in excess. The items were provided to the local task force of each island.
“We are not checking what the cost is for this. The most important thing is the safety of the N. Atoll to which we belong and the Maldives.” An official from the company stated.
The owners of the company have previously donated five ventilators, 10,000 test kits and 100,000 face masks, 200 respirators, and 500 PPEs to the Maldives. The company has also assisted the island of Sh. Narudhoo where a significant amount of COVID-19 cases were identified.
