– Since the Covid-19 pandemic is getting more complicated all around the world, Vietnam has been facing lots of problems.
+ One of the most urgent problems now is that the demand for facial masks to prevent COVID-19 virus is much greater than the suppliers sell to the market OR they push prices up excessively as much as real costs, which creates a lot of problems for the customers, especially students and low-income workers. Since then, the thriving sale of fake facial masks has caused many adverse effects on the health of consumers.
+ From relevant information to the Covid-19 epidemic, besides medical mask, cloth mask is also eligible for preventing Coronavirus. However, the current price is quite costly.
+ Acknowledging inhabitants about how to prevent coronavirus encourages them to access the latest news quickly and accurately.
– With all above reasons and our desire to reduce Covid-19 patients, we want to supply low-cost and high-quality cloth masks for customers, particularly for students and low-income workers. Additionally, we also want to spread urgent information about coronavirus prevention.

This project was founded with the aim at systematizing first aid knowledge and skills, applying studied theory into real life. Why did the team choose to train first aid knowledge? In the era of science and technology, we can easily find out the needed information, however, with such a huge amount of data, not anyone could find themselves a reliable resource. Besides, the credulity in acquiring information might bring many serious consequences in the future. Realizing those problems, the team was surely fervent to bring the project “ARE YOU READY?” close to the community, specifically for the Luong Van Can Fund students.
The project will be executed in two forms: Online (in the Facebook Group TAN CO GIAO DUYEN) and Off-line (at Le Van Tam Park), with an estimated time of over a month, from March 1st to APril 4th, 2020. With the above plan, the team hoped to provide scientific information on at least 4 first-aid problems: bleeding wound, dislocation – sprain, foreign object cavity and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
