Our health system is under increasing pressure as the scale and impact of COVID-19 continues to grow. The Medical Panty has set up emergency programs to assist healthcare workers dealing with COVID-19.
Medical Pantry’s COVID-19 Appeal will fund the following:
– Aerosol Boxes for Hospitals
Medical Pantry is producing approx 300 Aerosol Hoods to protect healthcare workers when performing intubations. This is an extremely high-risk procedure for our Anaesthetists, Emergency Physicians and Intensivists. We’ve had 60 requests in 48 hours from hospitals all over Australia. The more funding we receive, the more aerosol hoods we will be able to donate to healthcare professionals. The Aerosol Hoods cost~$150 to produce.
– Hand Sanitisers for GPs
The Medical Pantry was generously donated 800L of ethanol by Starward Distillery. We have combined forces with the team at TerryWhite Chemmart Brimbank to mix hand sanitisers for healthcare workers. We will produce approx 1000 x 1L bottles to be distributed amongst general practices. These will be ready for distribution Monday (06/04/2020). Funding will cover the costs of bottling and delivery.
– PPE Equipment for Frontline Workers
Collection and distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for front line workers testing for COVID-19. We want to help provide organisations and businesses with a drop-off and collection point to make it easier for PPE to be donated to those who need it.
We recognise that it is financially a tough time for people. So please donate whatever you can to help us get these much-needed supplies to our hospitals and GPs as soon as possible. We greatly appreciate your support.

Thanks to Time Sensitive Logistics, we have doubled our warehousing floor area. To set up the new warehouse we need

- Folding chairs – 10 x $30
