THE PROBLEM

Healthcare workers and NYC residents need protective equipment for the long haul. It’s time for a shift to economically and environmentally sustainable solutions. Reusable PPE is the answer.

WHAT WE ARE DOING

We will not leave our front line defenseless. We stand for them Now.

Since COVID Courage launched we have produced, purchased and distributed over 30,000 pieces of PPE to communities and hospitals in all 5 boroughs of NYC.

Now we are working on SUSTAINABLE PPE.

The ongoing purchase of expensive and disposable N95s is not possible for many hospitals, especially those in under-served communities. Reusable Respirators provide equivalent protection for healthcare workers for a fraction of the cost. Imagine a hospital where every single frontline healthcare worker has their own reusable mask that will last for years! This is our goal.

Together we can ensure that every frontline healthcare worker is equipped with a Reusable Respirator so they can safely care for our communities during COVID and beyond.

Right now we are working to put a reusable respirator on the face of every single frontline worker in The Brooklyn Hospital Center. In partnership with the New York City’s Public Advocate's Office, the New York State Nurses Association and the Brooklyn Hospital Center we aim to expand this program to hospitals throughout the city, state and the US.

Our commitment to providing cloth masks to the community also continues.

ABOUT COVID COURAGE

COVID–Courage was formed by concerned NYC residents and doctors.

We are working to find alternate and innovative ways to get the resources that NYC desperately needs - Now.

This website was created to provide a secure platform for the donation of funds and creation of community. 100% of donations received will be used for the purchase and distribution of materials and equipment to NYC health facilities and hard-hit communities.

Dr. Natasha Anushri Anandaraja is coordinating this effort as a physician who has first hand knowledge of the urgent need for equipment in our healthcare facilities. She can be reached directly at dr.anandaraja@covidcourage.is

501c3 coverage for donations and this website are being generously provided by the School of Humanity & Awareness in Atlanta, Georgia, a non-profit that has worked with people for 20 years to build collective awareness and impact for global good.
