Respirator Masks for Healthcare Professionals
*** 185 of 300 masks pledged ***
We are asking financial donation to purchase KN95 respirator masks which will be distributed at no cost to healthcare personnel in Kathmandu who are managing patients with confirmed/suspected cases of COVID-19. We understand that most of these caregivers are only using surgical masks/cloth-fabric mask which doesnt provide enough protection against the virus.
KN95 respirator masks are recommended to healthcare professionals to avoid transmission of COVID-19; KN95 is Chinese standard which is equivalent to N95 American standard. We already have a reliable supplier in Kathmandu, and we need to raise money asap to purchase these masks.
For now, we are planning to secure 300 KN95 masks through pledges from our friends, family, and our network at SherpaShah, NepaliTravellers, and Hostel Solo Travel Nepal. This is something we can quickly make happen while still quarantining ourselves in our homes.
Please make pledges of 5 masks (2500 npr) or 10 masks (5000 npr) if you are able to contribute. We are trying to keep the pledge process simple and straightforward. Please send us a message if you want to contribute.
