Andrew King, founder of Pure Air™, the world’s first Covid-19 Protective Shirt, has a deep connection to the Edenvale community, particularly to Little Eden and the work they do. Having run his Tattoo Shop (M&K Before Ink) in the area, allowed King the opportunity to get to know this connected community. He has donated 67 Pure-Air™ Covid-19 Protective Shirts to the staff and residents of Little Eden.
‘Last year we donated 67 Pure-Air™ shirts to help offer Covid-19 protection to some of the residents of the Little Eden Community, this year we aimed to do the same. We hope to bring warmth and certified protection so that more of the community can breathe freely this winter,’ said King.
The Covid-protective shirt can be worn as an outer garment or as a vest, layered underneath your clothing. The mouth-covering part can easily be pulled up over the face to offer government-aligned standard protection against the virus – or dropped back down to the neck without becoming a hinderance. In addition to the standard protection, a medical grade ISO14664 protective filter can be inserted into the mouth-covering part of the shirt – and used in high-risk situations such as hospital visits and grouped gatherings.
Little Eden is a registered non-profit organisation that provides life-long care to 300 children and adults with profound intellectual disabilities in two custom-designed residential facilities: Domitilla and Danny Hyams Home in Edenvale, and Elvira Rota Village in Bapsfontein.
