During these uncertain times, Surgical Volunteers International is redirecting all of its efforts to help with the COVID-19 crisis that our nation is battling.
We want to support all of our front-line healthcare professionals and first responders in their honorable fight by providing them with personal protection equipment (PPE) to ensure their safety and health.
So far we have been fortunate enough to donate more than 400 masks with filters, 200 face shields, gloves, and N95 masks. Each mask was individually packaged with care and included a personal thank you note. Our donations were made to charity clinics and Federally Qualified Health Centers that provide healthcare to the underserved.
We are preparing to distribute more than 500 more masks and face shields as we continue our mission. This collaborative effort is only made possible through our generous donors and the dedication and hard work of our volunteers who have sewn masks or have 3-D printed and assembled face shields.
SVI wants to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the healthcare providers, loyal donors, and dedicated volunteers who make our world a better and safer place!
