Over A million masks sent
Overall, we have sent 310 boxes (620,000 masks) to 173 hospitals across 34 states across North America, including the United States (including the territory of Puerto Rico), Canada and to Tijuana, Mexico.
627,000 masks will be given to MedShare, a national non-profit organization that recovers surplus medical supplies and redistributes them to needed healthcare clinics. We were approved a grant for $30,000 from a coronavirus relief fund from Flexport.org – the humanitarian arm of the Flexport freight forwarding giant – to transport masks to MedShare’s network of hospitals/clinics in need.
Currently, we are sending MedShare 336 boxes (equivalent to an additional 627,000 masks) to distribute through the MedShare network. With the remainder of our donor funds, we anticipate buying additional masks to be sent through the Flexport and MedShare agreement.
