“We have received very in-depth training addressing topics that we did not know until now and that will serve us for future performance as professional workers.”
“We have received courses on how to work from production, complying with the necessary measures for good manufacturing practices.”
“I really feel very happy, grateful that they accepted the support and our will to do, in this way we are part of the efforts to eliminate a situation as complicated as the existence of COVID-19.”
“As a young man I am assuming a great responsibility, being part of the production of several of the medicines that are applied to patients infected with the virus.”
