There’s a new, uncomplicated way, to arm frontline healthcare providers with the personal protective supplies they need to fight Covid-19. It’s called the The Frontline Fund. So far, there are over 100 health agencies onboard across Canada and the fund has already raised $8.5 million.
The fund will keep donations in the province you choose, meaning you can directly support both the Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation and Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre Foundation.
The funding will help frontline workers pay for hotel rooms, get mental-health supports and much needed personal protective equipment.
“The situation our frontline healthcare workers are facing is unprecedented,” said Caroline Riseboro, President and CEO, Trillium Health Partners Foundation, a member of the steering committee for The Frontline Fund.
“They are working around the clock, at risk of contracting COVID-19. They are isolating themselves from their families to avoid spreading the virus. They are tired, anxious, and under relentless pressure to keep fighting. And yet, every day, they go back to work to protect us. We need to protect them, too,” added Riseboro.
