Thank You Letters from PPE Donation Recipients
Understanding the importance of the CAHON network during such unprecedented times, CAHON assembled a volunteer COVID-19 Task Force to identify reliable sources of personal protective equipment (PPE) for members and the medical community in the United States.
Upon conclusion in April 2020, the initiative was a tremendous success. There was heartfelt participation and support across US and China, with over $70,000+ raised and there was great thanks to all the passionate donors, particularly to I-Mab Biopharma, and collaborative partners, BayHelix and Zenni for tremendous support!
A total of 150+ boxes of PPEs (about 18,000 KN95 and 15,600 surgical masks) were sent to 80+ CAHON members and longtime supporters on the frontline of patient care fighting COVID-19 in the US. The PPE allocations were prioritized based on the severity of COVID-19 in the region and the urgent personal needs of CAHON member physicians. For each personal use request, 1-4 boxes of PPE with 50 KN95 and 200 medical masks or 200 KN95 were allocated and shipped. Limited PPE supplies of gowns (about 400) and goggles were primarily allocated to the hit-hardest CAHON members physicians in the NY/NJ areas.
Since then, CAHON has received letters of gratitude from donation recipients. To view these letters, click on the links below.
