Fine Hygienic Holding supports Palestinians in Gaza against COVID-19

Dec 15,2020 - Last updated at Dec 15,2020

In line with its values, Fine Hygienic Holding has announced its support of the United Nations Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA) through providing its anti-viral face masks to those who need it most, Palestinian refugees and UNRWA’s frontline health workers in Gaza as they combat the spread of COVID-19.

Palestinian refugees have been facing extreme difficulties accessing vital essentials and personal protective equipment throughout the crisis, putting many at risk of contracting the virus.

Fine’s donation comes to help mitigate this risk. Fine Hygienic Holding CEO, James Michael Lafferty, said, “Palestinian heritage is at the heart of Fine — our founder, Elia Nuqul, was a Palestinian who worked tirelessly for years to build his company from the ground up and the values he instilled in the business are ones we uphold to this day. One such value is our belief in doing the right thing. Always.

On a personal level, I feel very strongly towards refugees and the reality they face on a daily basis, which is why I am proud to be a part of a company that is determined to aid all its communities, especially those most in need.” In a recent study, which was conducted by the Free University of Berlin and RWTH Aachen University in Germany, it was confirmed that the technology incorporated in the masks effectively eliminates pathogens of all types, including the virus responsible for COVID-19.
