We are committed to being an active and responsible part of the local community and have financially supported several local and national organisations.
In December 2021 the team in Vitalograph Ennis dressed up in their festive finest on Christmas Jumper Day 4 CF to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. With Bah Humbug badges for those who weren’t in the mood for sparkle and tinsel, donations were collected both online and at our Ennis premises, with those working from home also joining in the fun by sharing s-ELF-ies of their seasonal attire.
Vitalograph Ireland matched the funds raised by staff on the day.
Respiratory devices have also been donated to Afghanistan via Medicins Sans Frontieres and also to Cameroon, Benin, Malawi and Vietnam.
We donate equipment, training and support every year to third world countries, particularly in support of lung disease research. The ‘Fresh Air’ project is one such research project that we supported in several countries including Uganda, Vietnam, Eritrea and other under-developed countries.
Supporting treating lung disease in disadvantaged countries: Drs Peter Harrington and Joe Gallagher have presented a COMPACT Workstation to clinical staff for use by two institutions in Mzuzu, Malawi.
Vitalograph supports world asthma day: Vitalograph donated a number of Aerosol Inhalation Monitors (AIM) to members of the International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) in Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Netherlands, Romania and Vietnam in an effort to identify and improve global inhaler technique and in turn improve patient outcomes.
