Our motherland, Iran, is one of the most affected countries in the world by the novel coronavirus. With more than almost 245,000 cases and almost 12,000 deaths reported in July, health officials fear that the worst is still yet to come. What is even more alarming than the disease itself is that these numbers keep rising and authorities now fear a second wave of cases coming.
Our doctors and nurses are risking their lives without the proper protection or gear to treat the patients that come to the hospitals alone. As a result, many of these brave medical professionals are contracting the disease and have lost their lives in the battle against COVID-19. We have already lost countless doctors and nurses, including some courageous medical professionals in Razi Hospital in Gilan province. These fighters personally reached out to us for help to get them adequate protective gear against the virus.
In an effort to raise funds to help protect our front line workers fighting COVID-19 in hospitals in Iran, our Facebook community came together to raise USD $156,984 in 5 short weeks.
These funds were used to help buy the proper medical equipment for doctors and nurses begging for protective equipment to safeguard themselves as they try to save more lives. Some of the items delivered include:
-Protective coveralls with elastic cuffs
-surgical masks, NIV masks, and N95 masks
-Surgical gloves and surgical hoods
-Goggles and face shields
-Digital thermometers and pulse oximeters
-Flow meters and nanometers
We have already lost too many courageous Iranian doctors and medical professionals who risked their lives to help save others from the claws of COVID-19. We need your help to put an end to this epidemic. Please make your donation now to help protect our brave doctors and nurses against COVID-19. The quicker you make a donation, the quicker we can get these materials to the doctors who need it the most.
