Techfynder has been praised for its generous donation of PPE to some of the most at-risk people in the community. We understand that PPE can be difficult to source for key workers and volunteers in our community.
Online IT recruitment platform Techfynder have donated up to 2,000 protective face shields to the homeless, front-line workers and emergency service personnel in order to help protect themselves during the Covid-19 pandemic. The reusable shields feature curved plastic that covers the forehead, eyes, nose, and mouth and are typically used by medical workers.
The company hosted a city-wide donation drive in Dublin, where they visited homeless shelters, shops, medical centres, and Garda stations, including the Dublin Simon Community and members of the Sikh Community.
The Blanchardstown start-up had reached out to Minister for Health Simon Harris and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar earlier this month announcing they had 2,000 coronavirus face-shields which they wished to donate, and since then Techfynder staff have been pictured delivering the much-needed equipment across the city.
"We are grateful for the remarkable work you carry out day-in, day-out to protect the health of individuals and communities across the region," a spokesperson wrote on Twitter.
Techfynder have now joined the ranks of companies who will be remembered for helping out whichever way they could when the community needed it most.
