Help Save Lives With Every Donation!
This video(courtesy of J Bro) shows how hospitals are running out of crucial masks.
We are encouraging everyone to join our cause in donating KN95 masks to average citizens, Hospitals, Organizations, and Non-Profits.
Together, with your support, we can help bring in the constant flow of KN95 masks to help curb the rise of the Covid-19 virus.
This image (Courtesy of lavision.com) shows how important a Filtering Face-piece Respirator such as a KN95 mask is in preventing the spread of Covid-19. It helps with containing particles coming from a person's lungs, at the same time the inhaled air is forced through the filtering material, which allows contaminants to be captured and reduces exposure to both large droplets and small infectious particles.
While we should all maintain social distancing, there are many essential personnel who report to work every day and are in contact with other people as a requirement of their job.
Currently, local grocery stores have one of the largest public gatherings. While many big chain stores have taken precautions of wiping down equipment, we can never be too safe especially with many walking without proper masks or face coverings.
The shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) supplies led us to reach out to our supply chain to source KN95 masks at the best price we could negotiate in this unfortunate climate of resellers uncharging for basic necessities.
We successfully placed our first order of 1,000 units on April 5, 2020. With your help we will be able to supply thousands of masks during the coming months!
