It is no secret to anyone that in the midst of this health crisis, health and hospital personnel have positioned themselves as the great heroes.

The qualification falls short if we consider that day by day, doctors, nurses, operational and administrative personnel risk their lives to save the lives of thousands of patients suffering from the health problems associated with COVID-19.

Although it is a reality that governments, non-profit organizations and various companies have launched programs to deliver supplies that guarantee the safety of these health professionals, the reality is that help seems not to be enough.

Hand in Hand to overcome contingency

With this in mind, Citibanamex, Banco de México, joins the CADENA civil association, to launch the “Mano a Mano” initiative, which seeks to provide protective equipment to doctors, nurses and hospital support personnel who They are on the front line of fighting this epidemic.
