Chanphua Wangsu, a youth from Lokgkhaw village in Longding district in Arunachal Pradesh handed over 25 personal protection equipment (PPE), to Deputy Commissioner Cheshta Yadav on Thursday.
The PPEs were developed by Wangsu himself and he provided these free of cost in order to assist the administration in its fight against COVID-19.
The unique and sustainable PPE are made of simple plastic sheets and adhesive tape available in the market.
Wangsu, who was in the news recently for providing free tuitions to poor students of the district, also donated 150 facemasks along with the PPE to the DC.
Expressing appreciation for the innovative idea, Yadav said the locally-made PPE would to some extent meet the shortage of PPE for the frontline workers.
“I am very impressed to see the support and coordination of the NGOs, civil societies and many elite individuals for supporting the district administration in its fight against COVID-19,” she said.
She appealed to more people to join hands with the administration in its fight against COVID-19.
