HOW ARE THE DONATIONS MADE?
We ask all donors to fill in the form available on this site.
Once the form is completed, our team will identify the establishment whose needs are best addressed by the donor's PPE. By this we mean: compatibility of supply and demand as well as the location between the donor and hospital site.
Once the match is done, we will coordinate the delivery of the equipment.
HOW DO YOU MINIMIZE THE HEALTH RISK IN DONATIONS?
We will take health precautions at each stage of the donation:
During the collection of the material we will support the donors in their approach so as to minimize the number of people involved in the collection and maximize the hygienic measures.
During transport (either by post or by car delivery), we will ensure that similar precautions are taken.
During the delivery we will respect the wish of the various institutions to deposit the material specifically in the places that they will have indicated to us. Thereafter, the person responsible at the various sites will organize local management of the equipment.
WHERE DO THE DONATIONS COME FROM?
Many non-medical organizations have protective equipment they will not use in the next few weeks. Here is a non-exhaustive list of these organizations:
School laboratories (CEGEPs, universities)
CAN I DONATE MONEY?
If you want to give money, a parallel initiative has been put in place by group of physicians. Their objective is to order PPE in important quantities and later redistribute them where they are needed.
