"Aos Valentes" is about the courage of all of us, in a bubble, and above all that of health professionals who fight for our lives! I ask you to help the NAU factory to produce REUSABLE VISORS. Being able to use it again is very important !!

Hello!

I'm Maria de Vasconcelos.

I am a psychiatrist and some will know me from "As canções da Maria" that I do with my husband Xavier and our daughters Mathilde and Manon.

I am very concerned about the difficult situation of health professionals, who struggle every day for life, our life, and I really want to help them.

There are not enough Personal Protective Equipment, there are doctors wearing the same mask sprayed with alcohol throughout the week, and others don't even have masks. There are no hoods, boot-covers, glasses, visors, a lot is missing. Being dependent of factories abroad for ordering these materials leads to waiting times that we don't have. It is necessary now! We must produce it in Portugal! There are already a lot of infected doctors, some are ventilated, and many more are going to fall ill without protection, and infect other patients and family members. The next few weeks can be chaotic.

 

We are going to help NAU , a helmet factory, which made itself available to produce visors, which are very important for protection.

NAU visors are reusable . This is also very important.

 

All contributions are welcome.

The money goes directly to the factory, and the visors go directly to the services that request them.

Lots and lots and lots of THANKS !!

Share this video, please!

And sing with us!

To the Brave!

It is intended an immediate implementation of the project and a duration of 30 days.

The value of the Campaign can be, and it would be wonderful! if it was, outdated.

Each visor, at cost price, without any profit for the factory, costs 15 €. But they are REUSABLE Visors !! This is very important!
