Sajjad Ebrahim announces $100,000 donation to help fight COVID-19

This week, Dr. Naveed Mohammad began his role as President & CEO of William Osler Health System. In support and appreciation of Dr. Mohammad’s appointment, Sajjad Ebrahim and Family, are matching donations up to $100,000 to William Osler Health System Foundation’s Health Care Heroes campaign in its fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“I have known Dr. Mohammad for many years and have seen him lead with compassion and incredible business acumen,” said Sajjad Ebrahim. “Those of us in a position to give have an obligation to step forward in these times of crisis and what better way than to support the hospitals and the front line health care workers—the heroes of our nation. Viruses know no borders, nor should our compassion. I strongly urge the community to join me so that, together, we can help provide the equipment and PPE Osler needs to fight COVID-19.”

The funds raised will help purchase critical pieces of equipment like ventilators, vein finders, vital signs monitors, stretchers and thermometers to help our frontline health care workers as they care for those in our community.

“I am truly honoured that Mr. Ebrahim is making this gift to Osler,” said Dr. Naveed Mohammad, President & CEO, Osler. “I see first hand how hard all of our staff and physicians are working to help fight this disease and how critical these pieces of equipment are. Your generosity is a true inspiration for all of us.”

A special thank you goes out to Dr. Frank Martino who served as interim President & CEO of Osler since December.
