This week, some 100 healthcare workers and support staff in Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) across the country were recipients of free gas cards from NP—the Trinidad and Tobago National Petroleum Marketing Company Limited—as the Company embarked on an initiative to show its appreciation for their dedication and sacrifice.
According to a news release from NP, the 100 deserving employees were identified by and selected from the North-Central RHA, South-West RHA, North-West RHA, Eastern RHA and the Tobago RHA.
They received their free gas cards on Wednesday 6th May 2020.
NP says while traditional frontline healthcare workers are to be praised for their courage and commitment, its initiative salutes the many other deserving staff in administrative roles and support services, who represent the full spectrum of services across all health facilities at the RHAs, and who also are playing critical roles in the fight against COVID-19.
NP’s Chief Executive Officer (Ag), John Gormandy, made the presentation to the North West RHA, at the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.
“We owe so much gratitude to healthcare workers who are working long hours helping those in need,” he said. “NP feels privileged to be able to recognise these brave professionals through these unprecedented times.”
In expressing his appreciation for the kind gesture, CEO of the SouthWest RHA, Dr. Brian Armour, applauded the tireless efforts of the RHA’s staff.
“They ensure a sanitized and clean environment, support patient care and mobilize personal health, equipment and consumable resources quickly to support frontline efforts,” he explained. “They all are deserving of any support and recognition for their efforts.”
NP CEO John Gormandy says the Company has pledged to support healthcare professionals and will continue to look for ways to support its fellow citizens, customers and Dealers, through the current challenging period.
The NP boss also says NP will continue to ensure the reliable supply of fuel, LPG (cooking gas) and lubricants, so that essential services and vital supplies can keep moving across the country.
