Liège Airport donates 50,000 masks to healthcare workers in Wallonia

Health and care services at Wallonia received a donation of 100,000 surgical masks from Liège airport (50,000) and the Chinese embassy (50,000).

"We send millions of masks to Belgium, Europe and even Africa. The well-being of families, the safety of professionals are important for Liege Airport ,” said Liege Airport CEO Luc Partoune.

Wallonia, through the Minister of Health, Christie Morreale, has decided to distribute this donation of surgical masks primarily intended for health professionals, to sectors which received less protective equipment during the crisis because their services were either significantly slowed down , or at a standstill.
