Frontline Responders Fund – Granted $7,500
Currently, Flexport.org is focusing all our resources on getting critical supplies to frontline responders combating COVID-19. There’s a shortage of masks, gowns, gloves and other critical supplies to protect our medical professionals in hospitals across the world. If a member of hospital staff catches the virus, their health is at serious risk, and they cannot work for at least 14 days. That’s a major problem. We need to protect frontline responders. More responders on the frontline means more capacity at our hospitals, and more people will get the care they need.
1. Manufacturers make the supplies.
2. Trucks get the supplies to the airport or ocean ports.
3. Cargo planes and ships will bring supplies to the nearest hub.
4. Trucks will pick up the supplies and deliver them to the hospitals.
Flexport.org supports all of these companies and makes the process move as quickly as possible, enabling organizations to deliver aid and make an impact. We’re at the point of intersection for companies to move critical supplies from the factory and get them to frontline responders. Hospitals and medical centers tell us where we need to surge resources. We’re working with every major trucking company, airline, medical supplier and everyone in between.
Last week we helped MedShare donate 60,000 surgical masks, 34,000 gloves, 2,000 surgical gowns and 50 thermometers to San Francisco’s Department of Public Health. One of the most important things we can do is protect our frontline responders. We need to protect them so they can protect us.
