Kind-hearted woman buys 1200 surgical masks and donates them to Dundalk hospital
A generous local woman, who bought 1200 surgical masks in China, has donated them to frontline HSE workers at the Louth Hospital in Dundalk this week.
Biling Yu - known as Sue locally - who lives in Louth Village, says she did it to help HSE workers.
Speaking to the Democrat, Sue said: "I want to help the HSE workers at the frontline, they are so hard-working. I hope that HSE workers can protect themselves, so as to better protect us."
Sue revealed that she made contact with a friend living in China and bought them for around €1 each and then had them sent over.
While nearly all the masks have been given to the local hospital, Sue said she had some left over and if anyone needs a mask they can contact her at Shang Garden in Louth Village.
