To date we have donated 27,000 masks, across a variety of beneficiaries. To bring the impact to perspective, 27000 masks will protect ~2000 personnel for one-week on the field. We started locally, by donating to the local police stations in Navi Mumbai. We also donated to the Doctor’s association in Navi Mumbai. While doing so, we got requests from Kerala for PPE requirements for Police Departments in two districts, however during this time requests kept pouring in from Mumbai as it continued to be the biggest hotspot in the whole country, and our local healthcare workers in the community and hospitals were needing more protection, that was getting allotted to them via various government programs. With support that we received for our fundraising campaign, we have donated to Sion Hospital, Cooper Hospital and Health Department of L-Ward (Kurla). Many more beneficiaries have been identified and are awaiting the donation.
This is our small contribution to a gigantic problem, but hopefully by protecting those who protect us, we can win the war against COVID-19.
