London-based Armenian brothers send 30,000 innovative face masks to Armenia
London-based brothers George and Alex Dzavaryan have sent a batch of 30,000 innovative face masks to Armenia, Public Radio of Armenia reports.
In April the brothers turned their school into a factory to produce protective equipment to help medics during the COVID-19 crisis.
George Dzavaryan, 22, technical director at Augment Bionics and former pupil at Latymer Upper School in Hammersmith, west London, had the idea when he realized there was a shortage of protective equipment, and the capability to make it on 3D printers at his old school.
The brothers initially used 3D printers from their classroom to make face-visors. Through crowdfunding they have now acquired equipment for mass production of masks.
The masks will reach Armenia within 10 days.
