PPE is a proven and effective way to protect against the transmission of COVID-19. PPE is essential to protect frontline workers including first responders, community health workers, and hospital staff.
This need is particularly pressing when it comes to the protection of our vulnerable populations, including seniors, the homeless and other marginalized populations. The frontline workers supporting these areas are still facing severe PPE shortages.
Without protective gear, our frontline healthcare workers will become infected and unable to save lives.
The Helping Alberta Initiativebegan in response to these concerns about PPE shortages. Proactively sourcing as much PPE as possible to distribute to our community is essential, as it will help all at-risk people who are delivering life-saving care.
Donations of PPE both large and small matter. Even one single mask can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and save a life.
Donating funds or volunteering your time and skills can also contribute to the fight against COVID-19.
Thank you to these organizations for their support!
