Your donation will support frontline staff in the fight against Covid-19
The Mater Hospital is the national centre for lung health in Ireland. It is also the national centre for adult emergency respiratory life support (ECMO).
As one of the main hospitals in the country the Mater will be at the centre of the fight against Covid -19.
Over the coming weeks and months, our amazing staff will treat large numbers of Covid-19 patients while also still caring for other patients with life threatening conditions.
One of the greatest needs for staff in the weeks and months ahead is ensuring that they have the supports they need to help them to deal with the psychological and emotional trauma that they will have to deal with, their mental health.
Many of them will contract Covid-19 and become ill themselves as they are caring for patients.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters the Mater Foundation has committed an emergency fund of €50,000 to help support the needs of all our amazing hospital staff during this crisis period, but more will be needed.
We have some of the best doctors, nurses and support staff in the in world working in our hospitals. As the Taoiseach said “not all heroes wear capes, some wear scrubs and gowns”.
They spend their lives putting others before themselves. But the reality is, if they fall down we all fall down.
Now is our time to help them.
