In November 2019, we came together with a common goal, to be proactive in the pursuit of safe spaces and improvement of hygiene in our countries of origin. The Coronavirus outbreak left us all in despair as we wondered, how would the 3rd world manage such an uphill battle? What can we do to prevent this happening again? Will we ever travel, meet with loved ones, go to our place of work, sit in a restaurant, go to the cinema, attend a wedding or a play at school and feel safe again?
Africa is plagued with poor hygiene systems and diseases that can be easily eradicated. In South East Asia, density and cultural social habits could spread a disease as fast than the speed of light. However if we choose to be proactive, we can limit the damage done from consistent disease outbreaks like Ebola and other endemics which will have a positive holistic effect globally. We chose to do something about as three women of African descent, we knew the immediate pain points in the 3rd world, so we began developing ideas and exchanging solutions that led to the inception of HyGear.
In 2020, our worst case scenario played out globally with the emergence of Covid-19 which fast became the greatest health challenge of our time. We realised that we now had a greater task and opportunity for UVC technology which included our inventions to be applied globally. With our products still in R&D phase, we wanted to do more to show how UBC could be the future of hygiene. We proceeded to launch a distribution, marketing and education division and secured collaborative partnerships with innovative manufacturers in Europe to help build a global distribution network of UVC disinfection products to sectors that need it the most.
