Personal Protective Equipment Kit (PPE) and N95 Mask Distribution To the Front-line workers
I am Amit from an NGO called CFTI. CFTI wants to distribute PPE kits and N95 Mask to the front line workers viz. doctors, nurses, Asha workers, police, village-level pre-primary teachers (Aanganwadi sevika) working in Alibag, Murud & Roha tehsils of Raigad district, Maharashtra. Currently, district Raigad is in the orange zone.
The Covid19 pandemic hit the world in the most unexpected way but no matter how difficult the situation is, the biggest quality of human beings is to stand for each other and you see an example of this in this time of crisis.
In this battle, on the front line are doctors, nurses, Asha workers, village-level pre-primary teachers (Anganwadi Sevika), policemen and policewomen.
They will face patients of this contagious disease on a regular basis. They run a high risk of getting infected themselves and unfortunately many such fatal cases have happened before. If these people had proper Personal Protective Equipment kits (PPE) they would be alive with us today.
Unfortunately, the number of infected patients is increasing at an alarming rate. The government is doing its bit by increasing the number of tests rapidly. But as the number of tests increases, the work of these people at the fore-front also increases. The risks get higher.
I want to appeal to all of you that let's help them reduce this risk by donating a simple PPE kit and an N-95 mask to each of our heroes. It is possible to provide one such PPE kit for the amount we would spend on a night eating-out with our families.
So let’s all join hands together and adopt at least one (01) front line worker (Doctors, Nurses, Ward boys, Asha workers, Anganwadi Sevika, police) by donating Rs.1350/- (Rs. One thousand three hundred fifty only) per kit.
One kit will include 1 good quality PPE kit + 1 N-95 mask.
Today, our survey tells us that there is a major shortage of these kits in rural PSEs in Raigad district, the District which unfortunately is in a RED ZONE.
Centre for Transforming India (CFTI) as you know has done extensive work in Raigad district in areas of fumigation of villages to grocery kit distribution to the daily wagers, very poor hand to mouth families, lonely widows, lonely senior citizens, etc.
We appeal to you to help us with 200 such PPE kits.
By donating PPEs we can pay tribute to front-line workers, who have lost their lives while serving Covid19 positive patients.
