Making Face Masks

Who knows what the real scale of infection and mortality as a result of Covid-19 is in Malawi? With little testing against a backdrop of existing widespread catastrophic social and health issues (incl. TB, malaria, HIV-AIDS, poverty, hunger...), it's more pain for a people who already suffer disproportionately. There's little we at the Tuesday Trust can do from a distance, but we have to do something - so we're funding the manufacture of face masks by local women, and organising the distribution of soap among some of the communities we work with.
 
We supply the fabric, the women get paid and the masks are given away. Small steps, but our mantra has always been that every little bit of support can make a difference.
