Two Founders of SEAL Foundation Donated Almost 10,000 Masks to Support CAIPA’s COVID-19 Hospital Relief Efforts

New York, NY – April 17, 2020 –New York, New York – Thanks to the SEAL Foundation (www.seal.foundation), the Coalition of Asian-American IPA (CAIPA) is grateful to accept its donation of 4,000 disposable medical/surgical masks (ZHIBO 510K Level 1) and 5,950 MAKRITE Level 3 surgical masks at a total value of $10,340, to support CAIPA’s COVID-19 relief work.

The surgical masks play a critical and potentially life-saving role for hospitals and first responders who are contending with the pandemic. In addition to the SEAL Foundation, CAIPA has been gathering monetary and protective supply donations to support ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts across the metro New York City area since early March.  CAIPA represents more than 1,000 physicians and applied healthcare professionals in the five boroughs of New York City.

SEAL Foundation (D.B.A. Special Elite Aligned Leaders Foundation) is a non-profit organization (www.seal.foundation), created to organize and operate exclusively for purposes of charitable and community services engaged in assisting children and their families. SEAL Foundation helps families and children who need special attention with general welfare, health, education, and dignity of life throughout their diversified and mixed culture communities.  For a list of the generous donors on this donation, please visit https://www.seal.foundation/2020fightcovid19.html

The SEAL Foundation’s donation of masks, as well as other protective supply gear, have been donated to over 20 partner hospitals, including NY Presbyterian – Queens, NY Presbyterian – Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, NYU Langone – Brooklyn, NYU Langone – Queens, NYU Langone Health Tisch Hospital, Maimonides Medical Center, Northwell Health System, Stony Brook Medicine, Winthrop Hospital, Flushing Hospital Emergency Department, Interfaith Medical Center, The Brooklyn Hospital Center, and Elmhurst Hospital, to ease the needs of frontline healthcare professionals caring for COVID-19 patients across New York.

Formed in early February, the “CAIPA Task Force on COVID-19” initially focused on relief efforts in Wuhan. Later, the group shifted attention to the surge of cases in New York City in efforts to support local hospitals, providers and allied healthcare professionals on the front lines of the pandemic.
