Many other members also extended their help in the process and already offered help by giving free fabrics, trims and production capacity. BGMEA encourages and welcomes other members to join hand in this effort by providing waterproof fabrics, stitching capacity and trims so that this can be arranged in a very large scale in shortest possible time.

“As there is a huge shortage of PPE suits we all have to come together and help the country by making free PPE suits for health workers and support workers to face the COVID-19 outbreak. We have already developed a spec and CAD based on closest to WHO standards. Any waterproof fabric like Taffeta can be used. As long as the fabric is waterproof it will help,” said BGMEA.

BGMEA also urged:

1) Please let us know if you will be able to stitch some of these PPE garments
2) If you already have waterproof fabric available you can use that
3) If you want to donate leftover waterproof taffeta fabric please let us know
4) We will also need Nylon Zippers (Number 3 or 5, 68-70cm length)
5) We need Velcrow Tape
