What is Heroes Aid?

 

Heroes-Aid, is a newly established non-profit organisation helping secure PPE

for Frontline workers in Hospitals and nursing homes.

Our goal is to raise funds to provide practical supports, such as essential PPE (Protective Personal Equipment) and other resources to keep our healthcare Heroes safe as they care for us. The Fund also intends to provide longer-term Psychological, Educational and practical support for frontline Healthcare workers, their children and families who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.

Heroes-Aid is administered by Mary Leahy (CEO), a Public Health Nurse, Dr. Matt O Tuathail (Medical Advice), Doug Leddin (Events) and Joseph Naughton (Communications)

Ordinary Superhero

We have put together a beautiful and emotive music video ‘Ordinary Superhero’ by Keywest. We feel this song tells the story of the tenuous line between fear and bravery faced every day. We’d like to thank all the members of Irish Band Keywest & Doug Leddin for helping us launch Heroes-Aid.com

What is Heroes-Aid?

Heroes-Aid is the brainchild of Mary Leahy, Public Health Nurse, Health and Wellbeing,  together with Damien Nee, member of National Covid Emergency Response Team and has been coordinated with the help of Amanda Wilkinson (RCSI) and assisted by Doug Leddin, who has come together with Andy Kavanagh of Irish Band Keywest, to record and release a music video with frontline workers at its heart, in order to help raise awareness around how brave our front line workers are and funds to help keep them as safe as we possibly can.

This Organisation was established with the generous assistance of a wider Team reflective of the public’s desire to support and help our Healthcare Heroes now and into the future. We deeply appreciate their time, energy and generosity.

The Team wants to show these brave people that they are greatly appreciated. Every day they risk their lives going to work in an effort to save the lives of our Families, Friends and Neighbours.
