Zohaib Begg is a 7 year old from Ashburn, VA who has always had a great sense of appreciation and admiration for doctors and nurses. After spending a lot of time as a patient at an area hospital, he wanted to find a way to support the folks who were so helpful to him. Zohaib had the clever idea to reach out to local hotels to secure protective gear for frontline medical workers.
To date, Zohaib has collected and distributed more than 6,000 pieces of protective equipment, including gloves, masks and shower caps! With stay-at-home orders putting a halt to his ability to coordinate these efforts in-person, he and his family continue to remotely orchestrate communications between suppliers and the most in need hospitals.
Way to go, Zohaib! You are a shining example of what it means to be #TeamOYG!
