KRAIBURG Donates Masks to Red Cross

Kraiburg Masks

KRAIBURG Austria has announced that it is donating FFP3 face masks to Red Cross workers in the Austrian town of Braunau am Inn as part of a programme to support key medical workers of the front line of the battle against coronavirus.

Programme to Support Key Medical Services

During the last week of April KRAIBURG’s Product Manager Christoph Priewasser handed over an initial set of 30 FFP3 masks to the local Red Cross representation in Braunau with a promise to supply a further 200 the following week. The masks, which are used exclusively in the medical sector, offer the highest protection against infection and have been in critically short supply during the crisis, being offered at exorbitant prices on the “free market”. KRAIBURG removed the masks from its own inventory, to support the emergency services in Braunau.
