We are distributing locally made soap and cloth face masks to people with disabilities to protect from COVID19 in Malawi
We are a women's organization which was producing school jerseys , uniforms and hand-made carpets. Since COVID19 started in Malawi we have adapted to producing cloth face masks, conducting awareness campaigbs through social media and distribution of locally -made soap to those most vulnerable ; women with disabilities.
What is the need are you focusing on?
There is an increased need for hand washing soap as people are required to wash their hands in every public place and often. Poor women may not afford this in their crowded locations, hence the soap distribution. There is a shortage of medical face masks in Malawi which people need to wear to protect from COVID19, therefore to ease the pressure and to leave the available medical masks for frontline staff, we are making cloth face- masks for Ordinary citizens.
