Story

Like Lambs to the Slaughter?

During the Covid-19 pandemic, without access to adequate personal protective equipment (PPE), care home workers and other carers in the community are risking their lives – and the lives of those they look after. As ITV News reported, they are “like lambs to the slaughter”.

That’s why Kit4Carers urgently needs your help to get FREE PPE to carers working with the most needy and vulnerable people in our communities.

The Forgotten Few

Shortages of PPE for NHS workers and health professionals has received much publicity. Less so for people caring for the most marginalised groups such as children at risk, the homeless, people with drug and alcohol addiction, or with mental illnesses. Carers and the cared for all need effective personal protection during the Covid-19 pandemic.

All Carers Should Have Access to PPE

Many carers are poorly paid – and some unpaid. Yet, frequently, the work they do is difficult and risky but vital for people who are anxious, lonely and vulnerable. Community carers are operating at a time when resources are stretched and, in some cases, shelters and community centres are shut. Their work goes largely unsung and they urgently need our support.

Kit4carers is a not-for-profit group that has been formed to focus on sourcing, shipping and distributing PPE kit to this community of carers as soon as possible. We have the procurement, logistics and supply chain working round the clock - and what’s more, we are already delivering our first shipment of masks, gowns and gloves this week into the UK.

Kit4Carers is led by Dr Pramod Prabhakaran, an NHS Consultant, Hassan Chaudhury, international trade expert & ex-social worker and Omar Butt, innovation leader from Vita Healthcare Solutions and Angus Robertson, Managing Partner at Curzon Private Office.
