Tina Tandon Steps Up To Help Fight The Battle Against COVID-19
NYC’S Veteran Indian-American Fashion Designer – TINA TANDON – steps up to help fight the battle against COVID-19.
Celebrated Indian-American Fashion designer TINA TANDON– who has been a pioneer and a trailblazer in the Fashion industry, especially in the Indian community, has stepped up to offer help to make medical masks, gowns and other protective gear for the Healthcare workers in need during this time of crisis, while we fight a war against COVID-19 virus.
“It is disheartening to see so many doctors, nurses and healthcare workers also in major crisis as they try to fight the battle against the deadly virus on the frontline. For them to leave their families and put them at risk every day to save other people’s lives, is beyond heroic. We can’t even imagine what they must be going through.
Seeing the crisis getting worse and shortage of protective gear and masks for our frontline warriors- I have been working to pool my resources and my factory partners to see if we can help in the production of protective Masks and gowns needed.
I am very happy to announce that we now have a facility that is equipped to produce 2000 masks a day, and other protective gear in New Jersey! Of course, necessary precautions and measures are being taken to protect the health of our factory workers, which is first & foremost important.
We are already producing for a hospital. Other Healthcare providers, Hospitals in need, can reach out to us via email – firstname.lastname@example.org or call (917) 409-6311.
At this time, we all need to come together and do what we can to help. Even staying positive and making someone smile can help. One positive act can lead to another” mentions Tina Tandon.
