LanguageLine Solutions, the world’s largest provider of on-demand interpretation, is set to make a significant donation to Direct Relief, an organisation that provides personal protective equipment (PPE) to health workers and NHS Charities Together in the UK.
NHS Charities Together is a membership organisation representing, supporting and championing NHS Charities. It provides a forum for nationwide fundraising and advocacy campaigns; specialist advice and guidance; bespoke conferences and training opportunities, as well as access to online resources and support through exclusive member pages on its website. NHS Charities Together also provides the collective voice of NHS Charities on a National scale and the impact they make.
In a letter to clients, the company announced today that it would dedicate a portion of the revenues it earns globally from the healthcare sector in April to both charities, up to $1 million.
LanguageLine handles more than 40 million interactions each year and has in excess of 28,000 clients. The company has partnerships in the fields of insurance, banking, communications, retail, hospitality and government, in addition to its many healthcare clients, emergency services and first responders that are on the front lines of the coronavirus emergency.
‘Because of our partnerships with healthcare providers large and small across the UK, we are keenly aware of the dangerous and pressurised conditions in which they are operating.’ LanguageLine UK Managing Director Vanessa Eke said. ‘We have no hesitation and indeed feel privileged to be able to offer support in this way’.
