Batteries help fight Covid-19 in China

As nations everywhere aim to slow the spread of Covid-19, things like regular temperature checks play an important part in keeping the community safe and healthy. One of our regular Global Hand NGO partners in China has been working with doctors and volunteers on virus-prevention projects, including community temperature checks. They had managed to source the quantity of electronic thermometers needed, “but there was a problem,” they wrote. “We are using the electronic thermometers too frequently to find enough batteries.”

Meanwhile, a company also located in China approached Global Hand with thousands of AA and AAA batteries to give away – a perfect match!

In early 2020, Global Hand was able to match this battery donation with our NGO partner in China, and they distributed them to doctors and volunteers to power their electronic thermometers.
