PPE DONATIONS FOR ARMENIA
Armenia two battles: War and the Covid-19 pandemic.
On the morning of September 27, Armenians around the world awoke to the horrifying news that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces had attacked Artsakh, a de-facto Armenian state that has declared itself independent of Azerbaijan — breaking the 1994 cease-fire agreement between the two sides. Many in the region had feared this attack since the fighting in July, when the Azerbaijani Armed Forces had targeted civilian and military forces alike, including a PPE factory, in Armenia’s Tavush region.
New COVID-19 cases are steadily spreading in Armenia, and the lack of PPE, surely less now with the attack and destruction of a PPE factory in Armenia’s Tavush region.
Yesterday (October 1st), Edgar and I dropped off hundreds of PPE products to Haypost USA in Glendale (see video), but after seeing the overwhelming gratitude from the staff there and other Armenians who were there to donate themselves, Edgar and I decide our efforts yesterday were not enough. We need, and we can all do more.
To further help our Armenians brothers and sisters, my good friend Edgar Ovasapyan and I are donating an additional 2,000 3-ply medical face masks, 200 KN/N95 face masks, 2,000 hand sanitizers, 100 face shields, and 2,000 medical gloves. (in the pictures). This donation will be dropped off at Haypost USA Corp., a subsidiary company of HayPost CJSC, National Postal Operator of the Republic of Armenia next week.
YOU TOO CAN JOIN US AND DONATE MORE!
Through our contacts in the medical PPE distribution field, we have access to more PPE items if anyone wants to participate in this donation and Donate additional PPE Products. Below are the PPE items we can get for wholesale prices, and we will arrange drop off to Haypost USA Corp in Glendale and live stream it and document it!
