To us, this global pandemic is an opportunity to reset. No doubt it calls for flexibility and major changes in own individual lives as we self-isolate. But it is also an opportunity with the busyness of the day to day lives to slow down, to reinvent in the values and communities that we most care about.
Thus Stretchery is taking significant steps to help our community. Our choices have the potential to meaningfully help those who need it most.
India needs more than 2 crores PPE kits and with the number of active cases doubling every other day, the shortage is only going to increase. Each PPE Kit is meant for one-time use and healthcare workers need at least 2-3 per day. Many governments and private hospitals in high-intensity states are running out of supply. Not only are our healthcare workers without a regular supply of PPE kits they are even resuing masks and rationing the usage of hand sanitisers.
To keep our bravehearts safe and prevent our healthcare services from crippling, GiveIndia has launched Mission: Help COVID’s Healthcare Heroes. This mission aims to protect our daily heroes, the doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers with safety kits and PPE kits. The kits will include masks, surgical/medical gloves, gowns, medical aprons, disposable goggles, hand washing liquid soap bottles, face-shield, hand towels etc.
Stretchery has decided to raise funds to contribute to this mission.
