To assist the medical staff working to control the coronavirus outbreak, the FOREO family had donated 2,500 pieces of protective gear to three hospitals in the region

With an Asian headquarters located in Shanghai, the outbreak of the coronavirus and the devastating effects on the people of China has motivated FOREO to provide assistance in an attempt to alleviate and assist the medical staff that is risking their lives to battle it.

With doctors and nurses lacking the necessary protective gear to combat the virus efficiently, The FOREO family is distraught over the stories from Wuhan City and the Hubei province. The beauty & wellness brand has donated 2,500 pieces of protective suits to supply three hospitals, totaling RMB100,000 (US $14,355). The hospitals are

Hubei Yangxin County People's Hospital, Huanggang City Xishui County People's Hospital and Huanggang City Yingshan County People's Hospital.

FOREO has worked through a multi-channel search and procurement to provide substantive assistance to the medical staff. The first batch of clothing has been rushed from Europe to the three hospitals.

At this time, the FOREO family is praying for the well-being and health of all those affected by the coronavirus outbreak. We are certain that with a united front and compassion for one another, the people of China will emerge stronger than ever.
