This is the best and only PPE you will need in your life. Wear it as if your life depends on it because it does.

Toulouse, France, Mars 2020.

Covid-19 is hitting hard France, and we are about to go to lockdown.

I ask myself what I can do to help my comrades and my family in Dakar, Senegal.

With some colleagues from the Airbus Africa Community, we did a quick meeting.

There is so much fake information out there. We need to provide people with a reliable source of data.

We are talking about putting their health in danger.

How can we provide reliable information?

Let’s set up a website where we gather all the verified information we can put together.

This is how was born amidst the pandemic in 2020.

Just a Google drive folder and an easy domain name redirecting to it. This is it!

Thanks to the K.I.S.S principle, as in Keep It Simple and Stupid.

We collected a lot of data related to PPEs: Personal Protective Equipment.

You need to sew a mask. We got you covered.

You need a file to print a shield. We have you protected.

You want a recipe for Hydroalcoholic gel. Here is our cookbook.

Millions of PPEs have been produced and are still being produced to protect us physically from the Covid-19 virus.

I was happy to be contributing to that effort worldwide.

However, we all miss producing the PPE of PPEs. I am talking about the protection of our physical health and our environment, and those around us.

Like in every health crisis, we are quick to produce shields to tackle the visible consequences.

However, billions of people are suffering and will continue to suffer because of the invisible consequences, the hidden part of this Covid-19 crisis, for years to come.

In this article, I want to share with you one PPE that we can wear to protect us beyond just wearing a PPE.
