It’s time to unite and fight for Ireland - the country we want to protect against covid-19.
The latest information shows that some of our frontline staff have NOT been fully protected due to the lack of supplies. Thankfully, we have found suppliers.
We URGENTLY need funds to purchase, ship and distribute protective medical supplies to protect those who are protecting us. Don’t leave it all to the authorities, there is something everyone can do to help.
This is a call for any donations, big or small. But please Donate Now and Act Fast to Save Lives in Ireland.
Who are we?
We (the Association of Chinese Professionals in Ireland, ACPI) is a not-for-profit organisation based in Dublin Ireland since 2004. With hundreds of supporters and a core team of 20+ volunteers, for the past 3 months, we have been supporting both China and Ireland to deal with the Covid-19 outbreak. We have been:
>Donating masks and goggles to areas of Wuhan,
>Donating masks to high risk children in Ireland,
>Donating bottles of hand sanitizer to schools and churches in Ireland.
Use of funds
The fund will be used for purchasing emergency supplies including masks, hand sanitisers, protective gear and any other supplies required to fight Covid-19 in Ireland.
If there is anything left in the fund, we will also support families and communities in the recovery.
Who are you supporting
Your donations will be used to support and protect frontline medical teams and service teams including doctors, nurses, Gardaí, volunteers and many others who are unable to get enough supplies.
Your support will mean that:
>More heroes are protected.
>The most vulnerable people will be better protected and their families too.
>You are helping to ease pressure on our health system.
>We are standing together, unite to fight.
At time of writing, we have already FOUND reliable suppliers and are just waiting to place the orders as soon as funds are in place. Orders must be placed urgently as manufacturers are overwhelmed by demands from all over the world.
To ensure we secure a shipment to Ireland just in time before the ‘storm’, please don’t wait, DONATE NOW. ACTING FAST is the key to survival in a pandemic.
Message to Donors
30th March, 2020
Thank you for all the kind messages and generosity to support this campaign. We couldn't' have achieved so much so quickly if it wasn't for you.
Just want to give you a quick update on the campaign:
> We have made our first donation of 10,000 masks to St James's hospital which was received by their CEO Mr. Lorcan Birthistle.
> We are approx €500 away from reaching our target which we set out from the very beginning of the campaign. Please help us to reach the goal by sharing the campaign online.
> An order of hand sanitisers have been finalised and should arrive in Ireland in the next 2 weeks. Once we receive the goods, we will distribute them to hospitals in Ireland and other frontline services teams who need them. We are in contact with a number of hospitals such as St James's, St Vincent, Master and Beaumont Hospitals; we are also talking to Gardai, other health care facilities and services.
> In the meanwhile, we have been talking to multiple PPE suppliers and assessing their quality and certifications. We will provide further update.
This fund is crucial in providing the right supplies to the right teams at the right time. It's our promise to you that we will do everything in our power to ensure that your donation is used in the most meaningful way.
