Well Done URWERK!

The hammer has fallen!

URWERK auctioned off their UR-100 "Fight C-19" recently, and the result was a very, very good one!  And since it was a very positive initiative on their part, we are going to let them tell about it in their own words -

URWERK is extremely pleased to announce that the weekend auction of the UR-100 "Fight C-19" attracted a top bid of 96,500.00 Swiss francs (excluding tax). The generous purchaser of "Fight C-19", an Iranian national based in Liverpool, England, has selected the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) association as the beneficiary of the funds raised.

The winning bidder explained, "As the first institution in the world dedicated to research and teaching in tropical medicine, LSTM plays a key role in fight against COVID-19. It is also a symbol of the city's past where Liverpool was a prominent port city which carried on an extensive trade with overseas regions." URWERK will also buy and donate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to the most vulnerable people living in Switzerland via a donation to the Swiss Red Cross.

We offer a big thank you to everybody who helped in making this magnificent result possible!

For those of you interested in learning more about the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, and if you'd like to make your own contribution -
