The schools, staff and students of Institut Mines-Telecom have joined forces to help healthcare workers, school kids, and companies through various actions and contributions. Thank you and well done for this show of solidarity.
Contributions made by schools
All the schools have contributed masks.
Whether they were H1N1 stocks, FFP2, or laboratory masks, 40,000 masks have been donated to health authorities or hospitals. We can also mention the contribution made by a graduate of IMT Mines Albi who donated 10,000 masks produced in China, and had them shipped to the school for us to pass them on to the hospitals in Albi.
7,000 pairs of gloves were also collected and donated.
Coveralls, disposable gowns, protective glasses, and shoe covers were also donated by the schools, as was ethanol for hand gel, and polymers for the printing of protective visor head bands.
An IMT Mines Albi student residence has been made available to the health authorities to accommodate people in quarantine.

Contributions made by students
