Flen Health, a Belgian wound and skin care company known for Flamigel®, donates more than 300,000 EUR in the form of free of charge Flamigel® tubes to all healthcare professionals in Belgian and Luxembourgish hospitals.
For Flen Health this is the time to show solidarity and to take action!
Currently, we all wash our hands sufficiently to fight against the COVID-19 virus. Unfortunately, this increases the risk of dehydration and irritation of the hands because the natural layer of oil disappears. This counts for all of us, healthcare providers and doctors but also for workers in various sectors, parents, in short, everyone. Flamigel® helps to moisturise and to heal our hands.
As a company, however, Flen Health wants to set a positive example!
“People in the healthcare sector are working day and night to contain the impact of the coronavirus. Within our company we were looking for a way to help them, so we came up with the idea of distributing our product Flamigel® for free. Flamigel® has been developed for the treatment of superficial burns and abrasions, because it is very suitable for healing damaged skin. The hands of most people in the care sector are starting to get red, sore or damaged as a result of frequent hand washing. This makes further work and handwashing not only difficult, but also painful. The vulnerability increases but people want to keep on working. Pain in the hands, in addition to fatigue, reduces motivation,” says Philippe Sollie, CEO Flen Health. “We all should stick together and help! I would therefore also like to call on my colleagues from the pharmaceutical sector to find a way to support the healthcare sector. After all, together we can contain this terrible virus. All over the world we now need each other’s support”, explains Philippe Sollie further.
