About the volunteering opportunity

Self sewing of protective masks for facilities with risk groups

The masks do not protect against infection, but inhibit the spreading of droplets when speaking. These masks do not offer the official protection standard, but they are better than no protection at all.

In our residential facilities live people who belong to the risk group, because they are old and/or have a previous illness. We want to do everything possible to protect our clients and employees as well as possible and are therefore looking for volunteers to donate self-sewn protective masks to us. This way we can stretch our material until the supply shortages are over.

Hand-sewn respiratory masks cannot be used for all measures, but they do help us to reduce the spread of the infection by symptom-free wearers.
