Today we are confronting the pandemic impact of Covid-19 that has engulfed the entire world. Many countries might have “flattened the curve”. But India is yet to reach its peak. We are sure your inside is telling you to do something for those back home.
What can you or we do to help? What is helping us here or anywhere? Social distancing and masks…
In India with such a large population, wearing masks will be an effective method of prevention. In rural areas, the idea of doing it might not appeal many but a free mask in their hands, we believe, would induce them to use it.
Here is a plan.
We have women who could stitch masks but are unable to sell and distribute. We know organizations that have facilities to distribute.
So, what is needed is the fund to these women so that the masks they stitch could be distributed free. A mask costs about Rs. 15.
This is where you and us come to help by supplying the fund. This fund serves two purposes: an attempt to prevent the spread of the virus, and an income for some women in the rural area.
