El Paso non-profit provides personal protective equipment to Juarez hospitals

EL PASO, Texas - As the entire Borderland community battles Covid-19, one El Paso nonprofit is working to supply personal protective equipment to Juarez.

"(We're) trying to help the doctors and nurses at those facilities to help them protect them," said Mario Porras with the El Paso Community Foundation.

Porras told ABC-7 that slowing the spread of Covid-19 in Juarez will help slow the spread of the virus throughout the Borderland.

The initiative is called the "EL PASO-JUÁREZ UNIDOS vs. COVID-19 Fund."

It aims to fund personal protective equipment at the city's "most affected" public hospitals, which are Hospital General and IMSS Hospital #66.

  1. Awesome!!! It’s a worldwide problem. Being a border town, if they are safe we are safe. If we bring their numbers down our numbers go down and vice versa. Simplenomics.
