Distribution in the Netherlands
EWB-NL collaborated with the organization 3D response to help distribute face shields produced in the Netherlands to care homes.
Shipment to Colombia
3D Printers were mobilized throughout the Netherlands who volunteered to use their printers and filament to produce face shields. These face shields were shipped to Colombia where our local contact distributed them.We exceeded our target of the produced face shields, with a total of 1400 face shields. These face shields were shipped to Colombia, and half went to the rural communities in need and the other half to the indigenous population who have been particularly hard hit.
On top of this due to donations of filament the project saved funds, these were then used by our contact in Colombia to help produce 1200 face shields locally, also using 3D printing.
Production in Brazil
The project launched a crowdfund and a social media campaign to help raise funds to produce face shields. 800 euros was raised which helped fund 200 face shields. These were produced in collaboration with EWB-Brazil who also oversaw their distribution in Brazil.
