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. People have donated or pledged to donate over $80,000 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. We have so far delivered hospital grade Non-Invasive Ventilators needed for infected patients to the following hospitals:
Wuhan Tongji Hospital – 1 set (shipped & in transit)
Macheng City Chinese Medicine Hospital of Hubei Province – 1 set (shipped & in transit)
Wuhan Midsouth Hospital ) – 1 set (shipped & in transit); 1 set (pending shipment)
Jingmen City First People’s Hospital – 3 sets (pending shipment)
Needless to say, demand for medical equipment/supplies for fighting the new corona virus is extremely high; Our St. Louis for Wuhan campaign has successfully secured the supply AND the receiving hospitals for our donation; 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 Non-Invasive Ventilators costs about $9,000. We call on everyone to continue fighting for the patients and hospital staff in Wuhan, and to help us deliver more much needed medical equipment to them!
Please act fast. Every donation helps us save more people!!
