As the healthcare industry faces a global shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) due to COVID-19, Eid United has undertaken an aggressive initiative to help frontline healthcare workers facing this crisis. Alhumdulillah, with the support of the community and their overwhelming contributions, we are able to donate 4,500 masks (3,000 surgical masks and 1,500 KN95 masks) to various local hospitals in Southern California facing shortage of these items, including Emanate Health Foundation (with three hospitals in Covina, West Covina, and Glendora), San Antonio Regional Hospital in Upland, and Azusa Dialysis Center in Azusa. As this shortage is far from over, we will continue our efforts Insha’Allah. If you would like to donate specifically for this purpose, please select “Covid-19 Medical Supplies” when donating. JazakAllahu Khairan for your support.
