DIY PAPR PROJECT

Help Healthcare Professionals Fight COVID-19

Are you a skilled sewist or crafts person? You can help healthcare professionals by fabricating PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and PAPR (Powered Air-Purifying Respirator) systems.

Your efforts will make the biggest impact — and will avoid the risk of sitting unused — only if you have:

  • a tight, direct connection to a healthcare system/provider with detailed needs and specifications

  • a reliable supply chain providing materials that meet or exceed those specifications

  • a "factory" environment for your construction activities, so you can ensure consistent quality

  • StoptheBug.org - collaborating efforts nationwide to stop COVID-19 with community PPE supply effort.

  • GetPPE.org - connecting those in need with helpers who have the equipment, skills, and materials to offset PPE gap.
