London-based Armenian Brothers send 30,000 Innovative Face Masks to Armenia

George and Alex Dzavaryan

(Armradio)- London-based brothers George and Alex Dzavaryan have sent a batch of 30,000 innovative face masks to Armenia.

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.
