The new coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread and has infected over 82,000 globally and killed at least 2,800, the vast majority in China. Alarmingly more and more medical facilities are depleting their stocks of protective supplies. In response to this need, Civic Force arranged transportation of 504,000 masks to the International Health Welfare Institute (IHWI), a local partner in Shanghai, China. The masks were delivered to IHWI on February 20 and will be delivered to Chinese medical facilities in desperate need of supplies. The masks, including 252,000 children's masks, were a part of a stockpile stored in a warehouse in Fukuroi, Japan. Civic Force has opened our stockpile and received requests from many medical facilities in Japan to provide protective supplies.
As the number of infections outside China continue to rise, Civic Force needs your continued support to meet the needs of medical facilities. Your support contributes to turning the tide against this outbreak.
