UK CARE FACILITIES CAN NOW LIST THEIR PPE NEEDS ON FINDTHEMASKS’ INTERACTIVE MAP
FindTheMasks is an international, volunteer-led PPE needs mapping tool, which has recently launched in the UK. Care providers who are in need of vital PPE can now be listed on FindTheMasks interactive map to allow donors to quickly and efficiently find local care providers in need.
More businesses are donating their PPE stocks to the care sector to support their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. This, combined with the growing number of PPE ‘makers’, means it is more important than ever to ensure the care organisations in need are quickly found to speed up the donation process.
If you’re in need of PPE, visit FindTheMasks and click ‘I Need PPE’. This will allow FindTheMasks to capture vital information including location, drop-off instructions and which items are in need. Once this is submitted, your organisation will be uploaded to the map within a couple of hours.
FindTheMasks now has over 4,000 care facilities across 14 countries listed on its website. Founded in Seattle, the organisation is comprised of numerous volunteers from all over the world who have come together to support the care sector in its vital efforts in maintaining adequate PPE stocks.
