On Jan. 27th, several organizations and individuals started the St. Louis for Wuhan campaign with a call to the St. Louis community for donations to help Wuhan fight the new corona virus outbreak. The call was met with overwhelming support. In less than 2 weeks people have donated, or pledged to donate, close to $50,000 in total.
The fundraiser campaign volunteers have worked tirelessly to coordinate with hospitals fighting the outbreak in the front line, and with medical equipment suppliers. Our goal is to deliver the care of our STL community to patients in Wuhan in the most efficient manner. We are grateful that our efforts to reach out to suppliers, logistics, and hospital management were successful.
Our 1st batch of hospital-grade non-invasive ventilators needed for infected patients are to be delivered today and reach the following hospitals in 3 days (Feb 11th/12th):
武汉同济医院 (Wuhan Tongji Hospital)
湖北省麻城市中医医院 (Macheng City Chinese Medicine Hospital of Hubei Province)
Needless to say, demand for medical equipment/supplies for fighting the new corona virus is extremely high; many overseas Chinese communities doing similar campaigns struggle with finding appropriate things to purchase or outlets to donate to.
Our St. Louis for Wuhan campaign has successfully secured the supply AND the receiving hospital for our 2nd batch donation (#3 and #4 ventilators); one of the receiving hospitals, Wuhan Zhongnan Hospital, specializes in care of pregnant women infected with the virus and providing them with proper care is crucial for their recovery and the health of their children.
Each ventilator costs about $9,000. We call on everyone to continue fighting for the patients and hospital staff in Wuhan, and to help us reach our goal of securing our 3rd batch donation (#5 and #6 ventilators)!
Every donation helps us save more people!!
