The current pandemic we are facing right now is showing us the real heroes who are sacrifising their health and safety to protect us. In the battlefront are the doctors, nurses and all the healthcare workers who aren’t allowed family time nor relaxing time. The weight of the responsibility on their shoulders, the stress they are going through need not to be explained.
There were videos and pictures being shared of doctors and nurses showing the heavy layers of protective clothing they need to wear 24/7, as well as the scarring that occurs due to these clothing. These people deserve nothing but respect!
A Canadian boy’s heart melted seeing the pain his local hospital staff are going through, and has volunteered to help them about by coming up with his own invention to ease their pain.
He is Quinn Callander, a boy scout. He is skilled in 3D printing, and figured that he could 3D print ear guards that would ease out the pain of wearing face masks all day.
Quinn’s mother posted on Facebook that ““Quinn answered a request from the local hospitals for help with creating “ear guards” to help take the pressure off health care workers’ ears from wearing masks all day. He got busy on his 3D printer and has been turning out dozens of ear guards to donate.”
This kid has such a big heart! He not only gave these away for free, but also made public the file he’s using to print them. Want to join this good cause? Here’s the link to the file. Help your local hospitals.

I have been a passionate reader, writer and language learner since a child, and I ended up graduating from University of Peradeniya with a BA (Hons) in English. I am also a JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) Level N2 holder. I have 5+ years experience in content writing/editing, and also 5+ months experience in official/business translation in Sinhala Japanese and English Japanese.
Anyway, the boring stuff aside, during my free time, I sing, play a little bit of guitar, read, draw/paint, bake and play video games.
