Friends - Covid-19 Update

In light of the global threat and response to coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you we have taken the very first actions to protect our children, teams, and hospital staff in Venezuela. From our Director's visit in mid-February followed by several coordination meetings with the team in Miami, Friends quickly reacted to provide with the following:
  • Dozens of critical cleaning, disinfecting and germicidal supplies for the pediatric hospital.
  • 3,200 surgeon's gowns.
  • 2,600 surgical gloves.
  • 910 sterile surgeon gowns.
  • 500 sterile overalls. 
  • 1,500 sterile gloves.
  • 240 units of N95 respirators/masks.
  • 8,000 pleated masks.
  • Gallons of antibacterial gel...
... and many other medical & surgical supplies to better respond to the Covid-19. This is just the first wave of more supplies to be received in the coming days, as we continue allocating more resources and ensuring timely delivery.

Regarding the always needed diapers, children's medicine, nutritional food and others, we had major shipments early in the year to ensure a larger coverage of nutritional supplements, formulas and different medicines. Thanks to Sortly, our real-time inventory system, we were also able to reinforce our inventory levels of diapers, baby wipes and other items that are also critical.

The Miami team is working remotely and in permanent communication and coordination with our teams in Venezuela to assess the needs and overall coronavirus situation. Venezuela is currently under a lockdown and our teams are determined to continue serving our children in the safest and healthiest ways possible.

Thank you, Paolo
