The Rotaract Club of Willowdale has teamed up with Initiative PPE
to bring medical-grade protective gear to front-line workers
in seven African and Caribbean countries.
All PPE and financial donations are welcome!

ABOUT: Initiative EPI is an awareness campaign to fight COVID-19 in Africa and the Caribbean, and to support healthcare and front-line professionals in need of personal protective equipment.

WHO WE ARE: The Initiative was created by a team of professionals and entrepreneurs with backgrounds from various countries: Algeria, Cameroon, DR Congo, Ghana, Guyana, Morocco, Senegal & Uganda.

They decided to unite to fight the spread of COVID-19 in Africa and the Caribbean.

WHAT WE DO: Our goal is to support healthcare and front-line professionals in African and Caribbean countries by providing them with gloves, gowns, masks and eye protections.

We are aiming at supporting countries like Algeria, Burkina Faso, Guyana, Nigeria, Congo DRC, Senegal, etc.

NEXT STEPS: By August 10th, we will be sending personal protective equipment to Senegal.

We are also working with the Centre Hospitalier Gratuit de Tessert in Haiti to send surgical masks, gloves, gowns and hand sanitizers by end of August. Date will be confirmed.
