In a time of great need, humanity is showing its true colors around the world. 

Healthcare organizations are working around the clock to provide care for those affected by the current outbreak. 

A hospital in Brescia, Italy, one of the regions hit hardest, was in dire need of replacement valves for their life-saving respirator machines.

 With the supplier unable to help, an Italian journalist reached out to a local tech company with 3D-Printing capabilities. 

Three hours later the two-man team of Cristian Fracassi and Alessandro Romaioli returned with a prototype. 

They haven’t stopped since. After partnering up with another local firm, BBC reported that the team hasn’t slept in days and they are printing hundreds of the life-saving devices, free of charge. 

These men are heroes.
