Geneva businessman and philanthropist Abdallah Chatila

The Breakfast Show // General // By Mark // April 24, 2020

Millions of face masks and other medical necessities are being flown into Geneva from China almost everyday.

The medical air-bridge has been set up by Geneva businessman and philanthropist Mr Abdallah Chatila who realised there was a need for a supply of material as he sensed there were some who were exploiting the situation.

Mr Chatila runs several businesses in the canton through his M3 Group.

He describes the air-bridge as a social operation. The masks are being sold at cost to the government and medical groups - and at a small profit to the public.

You can buy the masks on mystore.ch

He describes this thinking to Mark Butcher.
