Medical Fetish Company Donates Entire Stock Of Scrubs To Local Hospital
During difficult times like these, it can be amazing to see how different communities come together as one, in ways we never could have imagined before.
Medical workers up and down the country continue to work on the front line in the fight against the coronavirus, and while they are the true heroes, everyone wants to do their bit to help.
Healthcare workers have made no secret of their concerns over the apparent lack of medical supplies, such as masks, gloves and scrubs so desperately needed to protect staff from contracting COVID-19.
While the British government has said such supplies are on their way, some companies have taken matters into their own hands, forming the most unlikely of alliances.
On Friday, March 27, a medical fetish company revealed it had donated its entire stock of disposable scrubs to hospital in the south of English, free of charge, to help protect workers who are risking their lives by coming into contact with the illness everyday.
‘Today we donated our entire stock of disposable scrubs to an NHS hospital. It was just a few sets, because we don’t carry large stocks, but they were desperate, so we sent them free of charge,’ the company explained on Twitter.
However, the company continued to say that staff working on the front line are not being given the equipment they need to protect themselves.
When we, a tiny company set up to serve a small section of the kink community, find ourselves being sought out as a last-resort supplier to our National Health Service in a time of crisis, something is seriously wrong. In fact, it’s scandalous.
Those working at the company have quite rightly been hailed heroes, however they have taken to Twitter to stress that the real heroes are the care workers who are looking after those who have fallen victim to the pneumonia-like illness.
‘We appreciate the amazing response, but we are not heroes and we don’t deserve any special kudos. We just did the obvious and only right thing to do. The real heroes are the NHS staff at every level who are on the front line of this fight,’ they wrote on Twitter.
At the time of writing, there has been 17,320 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1,019 deaths in the UK, according to official figures released on Saturday.
As the number of cases continues to rise, we can all do out bit, by staying home and helping to flatten the curve.
