How can you support Italians fighting with Covid-19?
Italy has been severely affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. Especially in Piedmont, the situation is critical. The death toll is increasing day by day and the hospitals are in need of medical equipments.
Specchio dei tempi, non profit organization based in Turin (Italy), is in front line to provide a quick support to the main hospitals of Turin.
What do we do with your donation?
Money raised is spent on 3 main activities:
- ♥ professional medical equipments for ERs and hospitals (e.g. lung ventilators, monitoring systems, modules and equipped carts for the intensive care unit, multi-parameters modules, etc.)
- ♥ assistance to 1050 elderly with physical and economical issues that are forced to face this time alone
- ♥ long-distance teaching projects for pupils of all ages that are missing from school for weeks
Why is it important to donate now?
Despite the severe security measures taken by the Italian government, many people are still affected by the virus everyday. Italian hospitals have neither enough medical machinery and equipment for intensive care unit nor protection for medical staff. Without a proper treatment, many people risk their life and we must help them!
