The University of Liverpool has now seen more than 182,000 items of personal protective equipment (PPE) pledged to its COVID-19 Emergency Response Campaign.
Since the campaign launched in March, it has also raised more than £371k for transformational research into COVID-19 and recently introduced a Student Crisis Support Fund.
The 182,000 PPE items include almost 155,000 masks, with a further 42,200 items comprising scrubs, gloves, hand sanitiser and more.
The Nigerian Alumni Network has donated a total of 107,600 PPE items, making them the biggest contributor of PPE to the campaign, and this equipment will be distributed at hospitals in Nigeria.
Other donors include the Chinese city of Xi’an, Liverpool Chinese Students and Scholars Association and The Belt and Road Association UK, Liverpool Chinese Business Community, Brock Carmichael Hong Kong, Raymond Chan and Benjie Kwong.
These items are being distributed to NHS staff and other key workers through the Liverpool Donation Hub, as well as staff working on vital COVID-19 research in the University’s own laboratories.
Professor Dame Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Liverpool said: “I am proud that members of the University community from across the globe are generously supporting our COVID-19 Emergency Response Campaign. The huge number of PPE items pledged is making a real difference to many people doing vital work within our University, in healthcare settings across our city region and also further afield.”
