At this time of heightened anxiety over the wide spreading Corona Virus and afforts to contain its spread, CWCFI seeks to increase our reach in the community by increasing the resources available to us.
Our Mission at CWCFI is to eliminate loss of limbs, amputations, deformity and even death through FREE, timely and compassionate wound treatment and care; and thus improve quality of life for those who could otherwise not afford it.
To achieve this we have been providing public health education to the less informed, homeless members of our communities whereever they can be found, addressing topics such as the types of wounds and injuries; Universal precaution; Infection control; Personal hygiene and sanitation; proper nutrition; Importance of seeking early medical attention; Avoidance of self-medication; and habits to prevent falls and injuries.
We also distribution free personal care products such as Anti-microbial body wash soap; Anti-microbial hand wash soaps; Hand moisturizing lotion; Distribution of first aid materials like Sanitizers, Alcohol wipes, Bandages (band aids), Neosporin, Cotton Balls, and so on.
At this moment, the addition of Hand sanitizers and face masks has become important addition to our supply.
