putting PPE in the hands of NYC's frontline

We are a community of healthcare workers and NYC residents working to purchase, produce and deliver PPE to NYC.

We’ve raised

We won’t stop until we are all protected.

Healthcare workers and NYC residents need protective equipment. Now.

Current Equipment Shortages

N95 Respirators
Reusable Respirators
Isolation Gowns
Cloth Masks

We will not leave our Doctors and Nurses defenseless as they work to save our lives. We stand for them Now.

Since COVID Courage launched we have:

  1. sourced, purchased and distributed over 7000 N95s to 15 city hospitals and clinics
  2. partnered with 3D printing groups to produce and distribute over 2300 face shields
  3. partnered with sewing groups and community-based volunteers across the city to distribute thousands of cloth masks per week in subways and food distribution points.

Now we are working with city agencies, healthcare workers and community partners to support a transition to re-useable protective equipment - a more sustainable and environmentally sound approach to our ongoing PPE needs.

Make masks.

We have the power to STOP spreading this virus. It’s time for every New Yorker to put on a mask or a face covering when they are out in public or at work.

If you are already making masks and want to join this effort, or if you have a supply of cloth masks that you can donate for distribution, please contact us .

If you would like to begin making masks for NYC, then check out these instructions and email us to connect – we will be in touch.


COVID–Courage was formed by concerned NYC residents and doctors.

We are working to find alternate and innovative ways to get the resources that NYC desperately needs - Now.

This website was created to provide a secure platform for the donation of funds and creation of community. 100% of donations received will be used for the purchase and distribution of materials and equipment to NYC health facilities and hard-hit communities.

Dr. Natasha Anushri Anandaraja is coordinating this effort as a physician who has first hand knowledge of the urgent need for equipment in our healthcare facilities. She can be reached directly at dr.anandaraja@covidcourage.is

501c3 coverage for donations and this website are being generously provided by the School of Humanity & Awareness in Atlanta, Georgia, a non-profit that has worked with people for 20 years to build collective awareness and impact for global good.
