Acclaimed fashion designer Asim Jofa and his team have taken an applaudable initiative to help the medical staff that selflessly continues to work in hospitals in order to treat patients suffering from novel coronavirus complications.
Taking to his Instagram, the designer announced that his brand will be soon providing free of cost protective suits to medical staff, fighting against the pandemic on the frontline.
“Let’s fight back!” wrote the fashion house owner. “Asim Jofa and the team have taken an initiative to contribute to society and play our part in helping our front liners to win this fight against the coronavirus,” Asim wrote alongside a video of himself announcing the initiative.
In another video on Instagram, the designer showed what the first fabric prototype of the protective suit looked like.
He also shared that Dr. Seemin Jamali (Executive Director at Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre) and her team had approved their prototype and they will be going into production today, less than 48 hours after the first sample.
Earlier today, the fashion guru announced it in a tweet that the production of the protective gear for healthcare workers has started successfully.
The move generated a lot of positive responses on Twitter and the fashion designer garnered appreciation to take such an initiative at a time of shortage of adequate working gear for the doctors, nurses, and paramedics in the country.
