As a major investor in Liberia’s private sector, ArcelorMittal Liberia has pledged to contribute urgent medical supplies to the value of US $100,000 to Liberia’s Ministry of Health.

Through this contribution, the company aims to support the country’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The company is also urgently seeking to procure medical equipment for its own hospitals. Although this is proving to be very challenging given the global shortage of such equipment, it will continue its efforts to secure the equipment as soon as possible, for the benefit of Liberians.

In a letter to the Minister of Health, Scott Lowe, CEO of ArcelorMittal Liberia, wrote that the company is working in close coordination with designated health and security authorities at all levels of the Government of Liberia to ensure the safety of its staff and the communities where they work and live.

ArcelorMittal Liberia continues to closely monitor the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and has, first and foremost, instituted an extensive range of measures to protect its people. It is also working to ensure business and operational continuity and is actively collaborating with all its stakeholders as the world faces this public health crisis.
