【Urgent Appeal: ACT NOW】 People's Mask 2020/04/09

 【Urgent Appeal: ACT NOW】
People's Mask: Support production of cloth masks in developing countries and protection for local communities from COVID-19
While the current global pandemic severely hits European countries and the United States, we are also concerned about that the situation in developing countries, which lack sufficient medical equipment and generally have a dense population, will be more devastating. Medical-grade equipment is in short supply across the globe and priority of that should be given to hospitals.   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that the general public should wear cloth masks to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, the supply of raw materials for medical-grade masks is tight, and the standards for production facilities and quality are relatively high.  It may probably not be a solution that can be done shortly.
At the same time, many of the communities we work with in the developing countries have the sewing tools and skills ready. Under these circumstances, we have encouraged partners in different countries all over the world to produce “People’s Mask”, a cloth mask in which tissue paper can be inserted as a middle layer filter to protect themselves and their communities from being infected.
Feedbacks from producers are positive, and some have started planning for the production. 
We appeal for a financial donation to support mass production of People’s Mask in various developing countries through the network of World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) and enable them to distribute reusable cloth masks to local communities that are in need. The initiative can also provide a fair and sustainable income for the mask makers who are affected by the pandemic. 
Everyone has a Mask for protection!
To support or enquire, please contact us, thank you!
