Sewing masks from home for community & migrant workers
11 May 2020 • 3 mins read
Our 2016 Silent Hero has been very busy during the circuit breaker lockdown. Mdm Jeyamani felt it was essential to sew some reusable masks to give to those who badly needed in the community since most shops are closed and some who couldn’t afford to purchase as the cost of surgical masks soars.
Mdm Jeyamani carefully selected the materials for the mask and sewed in various sizes right from her sewing machine at home.
Loving to sew during free time and being her favourite hobby, Mdm Jeyamani first sewed for herself and family. She carefully selected the right fabric material so that it covers and protects well from the virus. After testing and feeling posititive, she commenced to sew many more masks so that she can give to the community as well as to the migrant workers whose also affected in this pandemic.
“All the reusable masks were immediately taken up. It was a small effort but I was very satisfied that I could do something meaningful during the CB period.”
Happily said Mdm Jeyamani.
