Supplies the Fuenlabrada and Torrejn de Ardoz hospitals and asks for help because the material is running out
The bullfighter tailor Carlos Galvn wanted to show solidarity with the situation so dramatic that many hospitals are going through the coronavirus crisis, and he has decided to use the satin he used to make light suits,and make masks and gowns for toilets.
“It is the least I could do, with our means, our resources. Now that we have the workshop stopped and all the orders have gone to waste,Well, what less than to collaborate as much as possiblewith all the toilets and put our grain of sand so that there can be the material that is so much in demand these days, “Carlos Galvn himself points out to ‘Efe’.
A charitable initiative and a lost fund, since Galvn is using all the material he kept in his tailor in Fuenlabrada (Madrid)for use in masks and EPIS(personal protective equipment).
“Money is the last thing that matters to us.The ruin is already upon us. The important thing is that we can provide resources to those who are now the true heroes that we have to care for and help, “he acknowledges.
Resources made from satin, a high-cost fabric that is“very good insulator”and that, in addition, it “repels liquids”, although, as he admits, in some places they have not yet dared to accept them because they are not approved.
However, the Fuenlabrada hospital has been the first to equip itself with this type of sanitary material, including ambulance personnel, and they have already received a commission from the Torrejn de Ardoz hospital (Madrid), in which they are working, precisely, at this very moment.
“Yesterday about 70 masks and about 40 robes came out. The idea is to continue working piece by piece to do as many as possible and in the shortest possible time, within the limitations that we have as we are a fairly small team, “adds Galvn.
Another added problem is that resources are limited, and the fabrics are starting to run out, which is why this tailor calls for more material to be delivered so they can continue working.
“All people who can send us rubbers, fabrics, any material with which we can work;someone who works in a store, or factories that echo this initiativePlease send them to us, “says Galvn.
For this, they can be contacted through their social networks (Bullfighters Store), in their email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone at 667.423.616.
“Let’s hope that all this work will help, and that they tell us that with our materials we have helped some health worker or have contributed to saving a single life,we will be satisfiedGalvn concludes.
This solidarity initiative from the world of bulls joins many others that have already seen the light of day,as the transfer of all the material coming from bullring nurses, or that of the mobile UVIS that some companies have under their belt, and that have also been made available to combat the coronavirus.
