The Covid Crisis Rescue Foundation (CCR) has been supporting frontline workers and the public throughout the pandemic. Now that lockdown is easing, and the far-reaching impact of the crisis is becoming clear, we are striving to support the most vulnerable in our society.
Launched in late March, CCR has donated over 30,000 items of PPE and medical equipment to the frontlines, as well establishing a 'Covid Cab' service and a free 24/7 oxygen saturation probe loaning service.
