Generous Kenyan Donates Respirators to The US Police



If there’s one thing that the coronavirus pandemic has exposed then its the illusion of the developed countries. Just like the third world, they’re struggling with challenges of a strained healthcare system. It was shocking when a photo of nurses at a US hospital using bin bags as their protective gears went viral.

US which now is the worlds Covid19 epicenter with numbers of infected persons almost touching the 1 million mark and over 48,000 deaths has become one of the many western countries to be questioned about their assumed supremacy.

Other than testing, we’ve seen problems similar to African countries emerge in America. Nurses have gone on strike over lack of PPEs which is the Personal Protective Equipments. A number of healthcare workers, security officers and other first in line workers, have been exposed, contracted and some even died of coronavirus. This shows how ravaging it has become.

A Kenyan man and his daughter, residents of Paxton, Massachusetts, have joined the long list of philanthropists now coming in to save in whichever way they can. Wilson Kiriungi and her daughter Alyna, donated respirators to the Paxton Police Department.

“A big thank you to Paxton resident Wilson Kiriungi and his daughter Alayna Kiriungi who generously donated one hundred 3M particulate respirators (and a pretty terrific note from Alayna too) this afternoon. We appreciate your generosity and support!” The department posted on their Facebook page.

“Thank you for being heroes in our community all the time, but especially now during the coronavirus pandemic. My da and I want you to stay safe and healthy. We hope these masks come in handy and keep you safe through the pandemic.” Her note read.
