Heroes often emerge in the face of crises and unfortunate circumstances. As the COVID-19 pandemic unleashes its fury across the globe, our heroes right now are the doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers who are at the front lines of this battle. As they work long and hard to save lives, they need to protect themselves (and their families) from falling sick too. The coronavirus has overwhelmed healthcare facilities in many countries around the world, and there is a severe shortage of personal protective equipment like masks, gloves, and gowns for use at these medical facilities, putting these doctors and healthcare workers at serious risk of contracting the virus.
Many of us are able to stay home and do our bit by social distancing. We are also watching our heroes as they work round the clock to take care of the sick, with much gratitude. Let us channel our gratitude and show solidarity with them by contributing whatever we can to increase the supply of personal protective equipment to healthcare professionals and workers, and keep them healthy.
The funds raised go to Direct Relief, whose coronavirus response efforts are available here. They are providing protective gear to healthcare facilities both in the US and globally. The virus doesn't respect political borders and our response shouldn't either. Thank you for your contribution! May we all get through this pandemic soon. Please feel free to share this fundraising campaign on your social networks and among those interested.
Once again, hats off to healthcare professionals and workers everywhere. Thank you for your service!
