Although AUKEY is mainly known as an electronics brand, the parent company has a wide range of resources at its disposal. When it became clear that the COVID-19 situation was becoming particularly serious, AUKEY decided to put its manufacturing might to good use and mass-produce face masks and other supplies to try to help out.
As of mid-March 2020, Italy is worst-hit region in the world and the most in need of assistance, particularly regarding medical supplies. 100,000 AUKEY masks are currently on their way to Italy, with 50,000 of those allocated to northern Italy, sent in batches of 20,000 and 30,000 and received by a hospital in Verona. Another 25,000 was sent to the ASL2 of Napoli located in Frattaminore, and another 5,000 to employees dealing with the disposal of waste and recycling in the province of Naples. The remaining 20,000 was sent to people in need in the province of Nuoro (Ogliastra), in Sardinia. We very much hope that these masks can help protect the most vulnerable and ease the burden on the heroic medical staff across Italy.
