Mask are actually creating health risks for many of the families as they do not have the funds to purchase enough of them. Families reuse them continuously and, even worse, children have been seen picking up discarded used ones in the slums to reuse. Our staff are sourcing as many homemade ones as possible as these can be rinsed and re-worn but supply is proving difficult.
Money from the relief fund is also being directed to the purchase of masks $10.00 buys 5 masks. If you are able to donate funds to help with the cost of this project, it would be greatly appreciated.
The relief fund has funds set aside for the months ahead to assist with food, schooling and any other emergencies the families find themselves in.
None of this would be possible without your generous support for which we are very grateful.
