TJ Kim could not stay still and see this Coronavirus outbreak unfolding without doing anything. This 16-year-old from Virginia cannot drive, but he can fly and therefore he got the brilliant idea of delivering medical supplies to rural and small hospitals in Virginia. Therefore TJ flies gloves, masks, gowns and other equipment to help to fight this Coronavirus battle.
Kim commented: “They kind of conveyed to me that they were really forgotten about. Everyone wanted to send donations to big city hospitals. Every hospital is hurting for supplies, but it’s the rural hospitals that really feel forgotten.”
Just to give an idea of his deliveries. Recently, he flew 3,000 gloves, 1,000 headcovers, 500 shoe covers, 50 non-surgical masks, 20 pairs of protective eyewear and 10 concentrated bottles of hand sanitizer.
