Speaking on behalf of the foundation, Mohamed Valli said, “It is always humbling to see the results of the Issa Foundation donations and how they benefit our community.

“Born and bred in Blackburn, Zuber and Mohsin are always keen to give back to the community, and what better way to do that than through ELHT&Me?

“The ELHT team has done a great job, from sourcing the equipment, to planning the location of each machine, and training thousands of doctors and nurses on how to use it safely. It is moving to think that we have been able to support such effective improvements within the Trust that will directly benefit clinicians and local populations in need of care.

ELHT’s Associate Director of Integrated Care and Partnerships, Arif Patel, said, “Defibrillators can often mean the difference between life and death. In the event of a cardiac arrest, every second is crucial and this incredible donation has allowed us to purchase more than 120 new state-of-the-art defibrillators, allowing us to significantly reduce the time it takes for a patient to receive the life-saving treatment they need. Thank you to the Issa Foundation Trust for supporting our work and to everyone who donated.

ELHT Non-Executive Director and Chairman of the Trust’s Charitable Committee, Stephen Barnes, said: “We were delighted to welcome the Issa Foundation Trust to the hospital and show them what we have been able to achieve through their generous donation.

“We rely on the support of local businesses and fundraising activities and their donations help us improve the care and support we are able to provide. This is not the first time that the Issa Foundation has donated to the Trust. Their generosity has already enabled us to do things like create a children’s playground and more and has made a real difference for our patients and our communities.
