How You Can Help
To express our gratitude to the health care workers, who are on the frontlines of this "war", and to applaud them, on this website you can make donations. Your donations will be used to help buy more protective gear for the doctors and nurses, who are facing a very heavy work load and do not have sufficient supplies to protect themselves from the very disease they are fighting.
You can also make masks donate to your neighbores, local essential services, such as Hospital, Supermarket, Post Office, Police and Fire Department.
