Curro Aurora supports health workers.
22 April 2020

Curro Aurora, as part of a national Curro initiative, is supporting various hospitals, doctors, clinics, the SAPS, ER24 and other frontline health workers across South Africa currently involved in fighting against COVID-19. With the help of teaching staff and by using the school’s 3D printers and laser cutters, they have been producing, and supplying, frontline workers with 3D printed facemasks and protective face shields.

According to Mr JC Engelbrecht, Executive Head of Curro Aurora, they have produced and distributed more than 5 000 shields since the lockdown period was declared.

‘All staff involved in the protective-face-shield project received the necessary permits to travel to distribution points while many are working from home. It is indeed a great privilege for Curro Aurora to be using our 21st-century learning tools, specifically 3D printers and laser cutters, to assist our healthcare professionals in combatting COVID-19.’

This drive from Curro also included the delivery of 1 500 face shields to Jacaranda FM in support of the radio station’s drive to support health workers.   

‘We are grateful for the opportunity and very proud to be part of this initiative. Together we are making a difference’, JC Engelbrecht concluded.
