People with high-level tetraplegia, paraplegics of higher age and those with pre-existing health conditions are more susceptible to a severe development of COVID-19. For this reason, the European Spinal Cord Injury Federation (ESCIF) has launched a European-wide project "ESCIF Help Alliance". Their goal is to offer surgical masks to high-risk patients with SCI in 28 European countries.

If you are interested in a free box of 50 masks, you can register with the Swiss Paraplegics Association (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), who coordinates this project in Switzerland. The only thing you have to do in return is to make a post with the mask on the ESCIF page of Facebook, Instagram oder LinkedIn. You may also send a photo with the mask on to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. To ensure that the masks reach the people who need them most, the masks are only given to those with high-level tetraplegia and paraplegia with pre-existing health conditions or of higher age.
