Urgent 1st Aid Supplies; Chile,Volunteer St Nurses

Volunteer Nurse Brigades on the streets of Chile URGENTLY need 1st Aid supplies.
The Chilean Government have deployed Military onto the streets of Chile because Chilean people are protesting via non violent direct action in demand of their civil rights and liberties and in protest of Government corruption. A curfew was instigated by the President and the Military have responded with brutality. Chilean Women, Men and Children have been murdered, and/or brutally beaten. Young Women and boys have been raped with batons and guns by military and dumped in the streets while others are being purposely run over by military vehicles as they drive indiscriminately into protesting crowds. Children and adults alike are being shot with rubber bullets in one case 58 times and often at point blank range. Tear gas and other gas that burns clothes on impact are being shot out at the crowds as are water tanks containing contaminated water. 
Professional and student nurses, some of whom have been fired from their Private Hospital jobs for helping to nurse those injured on the streets have banded together to form Nursing Brigades throughout Santiago to provide 1st Aid to individuals brutalized by the Military. In some cases the nurses have been brutalized by Military for helping the injured.
The current Government has not provided any support and have in fact on more than one occasion via the Military blasted the makeshift 1st Aid stands with contaminated water or Tear Gas ruining what little medical supplies have been collected via donations from individuals. My cousin is one of these Nurses and she tells me that she has had to take Table cloths from home to the 1st Aid site as they do not have beds or sanitary areas to lay the injured when they are being treated.
They urgently need basic 1st Aid supplies such as bandages, Crepe ('conforming' or elastic) of varying widths, Non-adhesive dressings of varying sizes, disposable gloves, adhesive tape, resuscitation masks, face masks, dressing pads, adhesive dressing strips (bandaids), gauze dressing,  sterile tubes of saline solution (minimum 10 ml),  scissors,  tweezers, clean sheets and plastic, clean water, oil and lemon to treat tear gas victims.
Please if you can help us, to help them, to help themselves in this most poignant time of Social change in a Country of People who are being brutalized for speaking up for their rights and demanding constitutional change via a Democratic process please donate. 
Change is coming in Chile as the current Government is potentially weeks away from being Democratically removed from power via processes occurring in Chilean Parliament at the moment. Donate what you are comfortable donating and know that you are helping a nation of People to overturn the consequences and repercussions of a Fascist Government who illegally took power in 1973 and created a Fascist Constitution.
