Glohelp non-profit initiative to support hospitals in Brooklyn and Brookdale

By | Student Initiatives | No Comments
Glohelp is a non-profit initiative founded by 4 students across Hong Kong (Joanne T from CDNIS and Bernice W from VSA) and the USA (Katie H and Liz B from Peddie School) that aims to help medical workers during this time of crisis. Inspired by the many heartbreaking stories found online as well as the continued effort of these workers, they decided to work together to try and help out. The team helps to collect donations from the public to help fund medical supplies such as masks, sanitisers among others that are to be donated to hospitals in the USA, specifically the New York Area near where the US students attend school. 
America, the country with the highest amount of confirmed Coronavirus cases worldwide (as of May 25 2020), has been under much pressure. Healthcare systems and hospitals across the country have been put under enormous strain, and workers only have a quickly dwindling supply of equipment to protect themselves. Thus, while working alongside suppliers and various hospitals, the Glohelp team has decided to work together to help alleviate the burden on medical workers and slow the spread of disease.
Since their launch, they have already sent out two shipments of masks to Brooklyn Hospital Center and Brookdale Hospital Centre but are looking forward to launching more shipments with the help of donors and donations from the public!
