Madikeri, April. 17: About 30 women in the district are engaged in sewing masks to control coronavirus infection. As soon as Corona began to spread throughout the country, some shops began selling facemasks at a higher price.The district administration took action against the public outrage. Then, there was a shortage of good quality facemasks. The brave fighters and some poor families are in need of the facemasks. So, 1.5 lakh has been released to the Department of Women and Child Development by the District Natural Disaster Fund. Their aim is to make 10,000 facemasks with the 1.5 lakh received. For the past 2 days, the face masks have been prepared and 300 masks have already been made. Facemasks are made using cotton cloth. Arundhati, deputy director of the women's and child welfare department, said the masks had three layers.
Volunteers and organisations
Many women have come forward to offer comparison service, but as it is difficult to maintain the social gap only about 30 women are allowed to work. Volunteers from Mahadevapete, Indiranagar, Kadagadhalu, Sunthikoppa, including the ODP Organization, Shakti Sangha, Swasthwa, are involved in making facemasks. After a health check, Corona control instructions are followed when sewing the mask. They were allowed to do this only after the health checkup. Arundhati informs that those who serve are honored with a district grant. After making the masks, they will be distributed to many departmental staff and poor families fighting against Corona. District Collector Anis Kanmani Joy has appealed to donors to help them buy clothes needed to make the health masks.
