UNIQLO Donating 10 Million Masks for Medical Institutions Worldwide!

UNIQLO Donating 10 Million Masks for Medical Institutions Worldwide!

UNIQLO‘s parent company Fast Retailing is donating 10 million masks to help doctors, nurses, and hospital workers who are helping fight the global health crisis we are in.

If you don’t know, there is a shortage of PPE (or personal protective equipment) for hospital care workers to adequately protect themselves.

In support of efforts to combat the shortage, UNIQLO’s parent company Fast Retailing has enlisted the help of its manufacturing partners in China to procure approximately 10 million protective masks. These masks will be donated to high-priority medical facilities around the world where there is an urgent need for protective wear, namely the United States, where around 65,000 cases have been confirmed.

Fast Retailing will donate 1.05 million masks through UNIQLO USA starting early April. These masks will be supplied to local medical facilities through the New York State Government.
