To donate PPE directly to hospitals across NYC, where they are needed most.
3. Ensure Safety
We personally know how important it is to have the proper equipment and right protection. All masks donated will be verified with the proper certificates so that they meet hospital standards.
4. Spread Awareness
We cannot wait for the government to provide our medical workers on the front lines with protection. Medical workers and hospitals are desperately in need for PPE. Together, we can help them save lives.
What dangers do healthcare workers face without having proper PPE?
Healthcare workers need protective equipment or they face risking their own health and the health of other patients. At the moment, healthcare workers without proper PPE are getting infected, sick and/or dying, soon enough there will not be enough healthcare workers for the increasing number of patients. We need to help protect our front-line warriors so that they can continue to help save lives.
From a healthcare physician, read more here:
“When healthcare workers enter patient rooms with inadequate PPE or without any PPE, we’re at risk for becoming disease carriers and potentially develop life threatening disease ourselves. If we then enter rooms of subsequent patients or interact with family members or others in our communities without PPE, we can spread the disease unintentionally,”
Doctors say “We are at war with no ammo” and “I’m mentally and physically exhausted”
“Nurse dies due to lack of protective gear”
"NYC Hospitals are struggling with coronavirus"
