To Whom This May Concern:
My Name is Jacqueline Nguyen, Pharm.D and I am the CFO of QYK Brands, a US manufacturer of infection prevention products based in California. I am reaching out to you to bring some attention to our Mission to Help India.
With the explosion of COVID-19 infections in India over the past few days, we at QYK Brands initially pledged to donate 2 million units ($10 MILLION in value) of our much needed disinfectant wipes approved to kill the COVID-19 virus. Sadly we had a problem fulfilling that pledge as we lacked the means to transport our products to India. At that point we reached out to our local ABC News affiliate, and they featured our ask for help. (ABC7 News Article Link)
What followed after the coverage is quite an amazing story of humanity and an evidence of the power of the news media. Following the news coverage, several companies reached out to us and pledged what they were able to donate on their part, from 2 Million medical gowns to 2 Million N95 respirators and even oxygen concentration systems. So far, we are finalizing two cargo planes that have been donated to carry all these products to India and distribute them to everyone in need, but we need more.
This highlights not just the power and the positive presence of the news media, but also how everyone comes together in a humanitarian crisis to help in any way they can.
With a worsening level of crisis through a second wave in India right now which has even impacted our immediate family, we have taken it upon ourselves to do more and we have increased our donation by 10 Million Units of dry wipes.
With this in mind we want to make a request to individuals, businesses and US government agencies to help join in the effort with QYK to make the finished products and step up to help India and to do that we need your help to spread the message. So far only LARGE corporations have been extending a helping hand to India but with the proper media outreach, millions of SMALL businesses, individuals, non-profit organizations or the US government can surpass those donations.
We know of many companies and individuals who entered into the PPE business at the onset of the pandemic due to the severe shortage of PPE supplies. At that time thousands of businesses both small and large, sprung into action and began sourcing PPE products to supply to hospitals and the government. This led to the PPE market getting oversaturated with products and currently there are countless businesses and hospitals sitting on VAST amounts of unused PPE”

“which can help India significantly. We know that with your call for help those businesses and hospitals will have the heart to help and would gladly donate their products and supplies.
What India still needs right now are:
● Oxygen concentrators
● Portable Oxygen Tanks
● PPE like medical gowns and coveralls
● Disinfection & Infection prevention products
● Medicines (Basic medicines are being sold in the Black market for 10 to 100x the actual price)
● Portable Beds
● And the most important thing of all is we need Cargo Planes to transport all these supplies to India as quickly as possible.
We are hopefully nearing the end of the pandemic in the US, but the situation in India is extremely scary and hundreds of lives are being lost every hour. The gravity of the situation is massively under reported and people over there NEED IMMEDIATE HELP!!!
The Indian Government is doing as much as they can to help but we must all collectively do our part and provide as much assistance as possible for the sake of humanity!!!
In response to the COVID-19 crisis in India we have launched www.QYKcares.com. We humbly request individuals and corporations to visit the site and donate whatever they can. Their 100% generous donations will go to help India and will most definitely lead to lives being saved.”
