These few months have been tough on everyone. Many of our daily lives and plans have been disrupted by this deadly virus. From people contracting the virus to people dying to people losing their jobs- no one has been spared from the deadly clutches of the virus. We feel very strongly for the negative effects that everyone is suffering from and are starting up a brand of reusable mask for a cause to help out the needy.
We are a group of people who aim to contribute to society in light of this situation happening around the world. Therefore, we have launched this campaign with hopes that you’ll be able to take part in this journey. The main group of people who we have approached to be the main beneficiary is one of the more vulnerable groups, the elderly. With their old age, their immune systems deteriorate as time goes by. Especially with the COVID-19 pandemic, the chances of them contracting the virus is much higher than the general public and could potentially be more deadly to them than to you and I. Staying safe in the current pandemic has required the norms of having a mask on wherever you go & whomever you interact with. This is an even necessary norm for the vulnerable groups such as the elderly. Thus with this in mind, we have stood up to create this campaign in order to provide reusable masks for the elderly staying alone under the public rental scheme. Therefore, allowing them to continue on with their daily activities such as socializing amongst their neighbourhood while being protected from the deadly virus.
Such neighbourhood includes:
Ang Mo Kio
Bedok / Tampines
Bukit Merah / Jurong
The masks are made of layers of satin and cotton with a slit in the middle to insert disposable filters to provide additional protection against the virus. As well as having adjustable straps to allow for one size fitting all. With the Satin and Cotton layers of the mask, it allows for better comfort, especially when it's worn the entire day. The better quality materials which made the masks to be smoother and gentler on the skin plays a major part in allowing for better comfort. The Disposable filters allows for an additional layer of protection against the virus. The adjustable straps allow for the elderly to make each mask to fit them to the exact spot of comfort.
For this campaign, we look forward to working together with you hand in hand to make this happen. In addition, we are also looking to those single parents who faced additional financial difficulties due to pay cuts or losing their jobs to take part in the manufacturing process as the masks are all hand sewn and cut. Through this we hope to relieve some of their financial stress by providing them with a channel to generate additional income.
To sign up to take part in making the mask, you may register at https://forms.gle/ksNnngnjd4cYFThR7 and we will contact you within a short while.
In addition, with every mask funded by you, we will be donating $1 to Lee Ah Mooi Old Aged Home. Lee Ah Mooi is a nursing home established in the mid-1960s catering to the sandwiched-class elderly. Those who do not qualify for government funded homes but also cannot afford the more expensive profit-driven private homes with top priorities on affordability & personalized eldercare. Lee Ah Mooi Old Aged Home currently has 2 Nursing Home, 1 located at Thomson Lane & another at Silat Avenue with a total of 110 aged residents.
In conclusion, we are putting up this campaign in hopes that you’ll be able to find it in your hearts to join us in this journey to provide them with something despite the current situation, offering comfort in 3 different ways to 3 different groups of people. Therefore, we look forward to working together with you through this campaign.
