Frontline medical workers lack personal protective equipment (PPE) amid COVID-19 surges across the U.S.

Hospitals in the U.S. are running woefully low on personal protective equipment for frontline medical workers, who are now contracting COVID-19 in record numbers. China manufactures more than 50% of the world's face masks and other protective equipment, but importing them into the U.S. quickly can be a challenge.

Many hospitals lack the budget and others have draconian state-run purchasing rules that prohibit them from acting quickly to purchase more equipment. 

The fact is that for whatever reasons, they’re unable to or are being forced to wait, and hospitals across the U.S. are actively seeking donations. 

We have spoken with trusted companies in China who already supply U.S. hospital systems, and have found that there are masks that can be shipped with no delay.

SupChina's mission statement is to serve as a gateway for understanding between the U.S. and China and through our various partner organizations, including the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center at Columbia University, its founder, David Ho, the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce in the U.S., and the U.S.-based Committee of 100, we have secured access to large quantities of face masks and other personal protective equipment from China.

We are now raising money to purchase materials and our team will personally deliver these face masks and other supplies to New York hospitals. New York is not only where our headquarters are and where most of our team lives, but it is also among the hardest-hit cities in the U.S., with more than 50% of all U.S. cases of COVID-19 to date.

Time is of the essence. Donate by this Friday, April 3rd, and SupChina will match each donation 1:1 up to $25,000 (for a total of $50,000) through our nonprofit arm. 

100% of the money will go straight into the purchase of masks — no overhead, no fees for us. We'll even be delivering the masks in our own vehicles. 

When the masks arrive, if New York hospitals have all the equipment they need, we will immediately send the supplies to the worst-hit region in the U.S. as of that time.
