Adam Scott has announced UNIQLO Australia will donate 150,000 medical masks to the Australian Royal Flying Doctors Service.
Scott, a UNIQLO global ambassador, said the medical masks will assist the team of 2,000 healthcare staff working towards flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These masks will help them to safely continue their ongoing services, such as providing Australians living in remote areas with access to much needed healthcare.
The initiative follows global action from UNIQLO’s parent company, Fast Retailing, who has enlisted the support of its manufacturing partners to supply 10 million masks to high-priority medical facilities worldwide. During a time where there is a critical shortage of masks globally, our healthcare heroes need these to carry out their important work safely.
“Today, with the local support of UNIQLO Australia, 150,000 of the 10 million medical masks will be donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service, assisting their team of 2,000 healthcare staff to work towards flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. These masks will also help them safely continue providing Australians living in remote areas with access to much needed healthcare,” said UNIQLO Australia’s media statement.
“In addition to these masks, we will also be providing every member of the Royal Flying Doctor Service team with our Ultra Light Down jackets to help them keep warm while on the job as we approach winter.”
