The donation was made to assist workers in these institutions as they continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to protect high-risk populations such as the elderly.
This initiative represents a donation of more than 1,800 reusable face shields for the staff of the selected organizations including the Ministry of Health, the Costa Rican Association of Alzheimer and Other Dementias (ASCADA), the Santiago Crespo Calvo Nursing Home, the Alfredo, and Delia González Flores Nursing Home, the Carlos María Ulloa Nursing Home, the Nursing Home of Piedades de Santa Ana, among others.
