Mayor Sylvester Turner recently accepted 15,000 bottles of hand sanitizer generously donated by prominent Houston businessman Dr. Farouk Shami, founder and chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc. The sanitizer will be distributed to first responders, health care workers, City of Houston employees, and others to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. “This is a challenging time for everyone, but the COVID-19 response also has brought out the best in people,” Turner said. “Farouk Shami has a history of generously assisting communities. I thank him on behalf of the City of Houston.” During the COVID-19 response, Shami announced that his company switched from manufacturing hair supplies to making sanitizer and bacterial soap to help hospitals, hairdressers, salons and consumers.
