Abstract

“Our family wishes to make our humanitarian contribution in order to assist in the fight of this COVID-19 pandemic. We want to be a part of the University of Ottawa team. Together we can support each other. The following are the details of what we wish to contribute: 980kg of clear plastic film of 0.11mm thickness. This transparent polyester film is usually used on flatbed printers to make signs and other projects but can be used in the making of face shields. Please, do not hesitate to contact us should you be interested. Our preference is to help our local community and thus we are committed to donating all supplies to your group.” - A donor to our University of Ottawa Medical Students Group for Sourcing PPE and Medical Supplies
