Actavis Sends Help to Haiti — The Reykjavik Grapevine

Actavis Sends Help to Haiti

Published February 10, 2010

The Icelandic pharmaceutical company Actavis has sent more than 270 million ISK (just over 2 million USD) for relief aid in Haiti.
The aid will arrive in the form of much needed medication and finances. The medicine will be coming in from Actavis branches in numerous countries, among them Bulgaria, Turkey, the UK and the US.
Guðbjörg Edda Eggertsdóttir, director of Actavis, told Vísir that natural disasters leave no one untouched, and for that reason Actavis decided to do what it could to help out.
Iceland has been active in the relief effort in Haiti, publicly and privately. The Icelandic Rescue Team lent their assistance, and the owner of a bottled water company donated thousands of liters to the area.
