The Sanitisation Tunnel will assist with the efforts to suppress the spread of COVID 19 and make Freetown International Airport a safer environment for passengers and staff.
The Sanitisation Tunnel is just one of the defences that have been put in place to help stop the spread of the virus, and if we all work together and remain vigilant, we can look forward to a return to normal levels of operations in 2021.
The donation was made through the Westminster Foundation which is the charitable arm of the Westminster Group PLC. The Westminster Foundation has been actively supporting charitable causes in Sierra Leone for many years and donated stable commodities during the lockdown in the early stages of the COVID pandemic.
The Foundation also provided support during the Ebola Crisis and continues to work with many local projects, providing funding and equipment wherever it can.
Commenting on the donation, Joanna Fowler – Head of Managed Service Division for the Westminster Group and Trustee of the Westminster Foundation stated:
“The COVID 19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on the aviation industry worldwide and the Westminster Group have been at the forefront of the fight to return businesses to work both in the UK and Worldwide - which is why we wanted to assist FNA in giving its stakeholders and passengers some reassurance that steps are being taken to protect it’s staff and passengers alike”.
“We have been part of the FNA family now for many years and we will stand beside them in their fight against COVID, just as we did during the Ebola crisis. The world is united in its fight against this pandemic. Together we are stronger and together we will suppress this virus.”
