Masks for Medics

Personal message

We are a group of family doctors who have banded together at a unique time in history. In living memory, no doctor has seen the likes of what has swept the world over the past few months with the Covid-19 pandemic. 

After witnessing the toll the outbreak has had on China, Italy and New York, one thing is certain, we don’t know what we are in for and need to be prepared to avoid devastation.

With the chaos of overwhelming numbers of sick people and the heroic efforts of health care professionals overseas, a group of family doctors, in Cape Town who previously all worked apart, came together to collaborate on ideas to better serve their patients and their communities, and thus, the Masks for Medics campaign was launched.

To reduce the spread of the virus and safeguard our healthcare workers in the home, palliative-care nurses, emergency responders, family doctors, physiotherapists and wound sisters, we need to provide the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to our heroes on the frontline who are the most at risk.

Masks for Medics is a disaster management fund set up to help those people who will care for you in your community, from Central Cape Town, to the Cape Flats, and the surrounding Townships. Our core objectives include: -

  • To provide the critical PPE which includes gowns, masks, visors, gloves and sanitizers and necessary essential medical equipment such as monitors and thermometers to health care workers, Doctors, Nurses, Palliative Care practitioners, emergency response personal and Carers to the elderly.
  • Training of health care workers
  • To enable Covid19 patients to be treated in their own homes and thus avoid overburdening the hospitals and healthcare systems
  • Dispose of soiled PPE safely

As lockdown eases, community spread increases and winter approaches we expect the number of positive Covid19 patients to exponentially escalate.

This is your opportunity to truly make a difference in your community. We need to be prepared.

*Due to the urgent nature of this initiative Masks for Medics will be working in partnership with The Angel Network to provide our South African based donors with a Section18a Tax Certificate on request.
