These are challenging and unprecedented times. As the COVID-19 pandemic cases increase by the day, we are running out of medical supplies to fight the disease. At this point we need all the help we can get from everyone that can contribute to the cause.

We are a group of enthusiastic and committed people that believe that can do a small but meaningful impact. That’s why we embarked on the mission of prototyping and making 3D printed face shields for the safety of medical practitioners that are fighting in the name of the community. We cannot join them in the front line but we can definitely help with our valuable collaboration from home.

We hope you can support the cause and help cover the costs for this initiative to Shield our Community. Thanks!

HOW THE CAMPAIGN WORKS:

The mechanism is simple but yet challenging. We want to prototype as many face shields as we can, but for that we need your help. Our goal is to produce 400, and after initial testings and prototyping we have brought the cost down to R 7,80 per face shield. This means we will like to raise R 3,200.00 to cover the cost to produce the 400 units. To achieve this goal, we have divided the campaign onto five major Milestones:


+ MILESTONE 01 // 50 FACE SHIELDS: ACHIEVED! (Check on the "Updates" section)

Produce the first 50 Face Shields by Wednesday 15 of April. This batch was donated to "Witkoppen Health and Welfare Centre", an NPO located on 105 William Nicol, Fourways. (https://www.witkoppen.org/)
