Masked with Love - Tanzania Fights Corona
Tanzania needs urgent help right now to prevent the Corona spread. Many of the underprivileged communities cannot afford to be under lockdown as they live and work for their daily bread earning less than $2 per day. They do not have access to basic prevention tools such as reusable masks, sanitizers and antibacterial cleaning material.
We have begun a Masked with Love Campaign to share love to our high risk community groups such as street vendors (fruits and vegetables sellers), identified social welfare individuals, and poor sectors from churches in Mbezi Beach Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We spoke to the high risk street workers and they stated that masks are too expensive and wish they would gain help. We are limited in supplies and cannot afford isolation as people live in slums or close-knit housing communities. We are aiming to Prevent the Spread of Corona in Mbezi Beach.
We are aiming to reach 4000 individuals, currently we have distributed 250 masks to two local churches and every week we have milestones to reach the underprivileged sectors. As donations come in, we will produce masks to be distributed to our beneficiaries. It is urgent as they need to be protected as soon as possible.
Accelerate, Kimz2Society, together with the support of Rotary Club of Mbezi Beach have come together to drive this campaign in Mbezi Beach with the hope of spreading this program model to other districts in the country.
We are asking for donations as little as $10 which will provide a CDC standard reusable cloth face mask, and pocket hand sanitizers with instructions on how to avoid the virus.
$10 will produce 20 reusable face masks
$25 will produce 50 reusable face masks
$50 will provide 25 protection packages of face masks and sanitizers
Each mask will be made by local tailors who will be paid for their work and in turn be able to feed their family. Youth have also volunteered their time to stitch masks for the poor. These masks are made with love. Masked with Love These packs have been sourced. We need help in buying the quantities needed and would be grateful for anything you could donate.
Please share and support the cause to support the underprivileged in our developing nation of Tanzania. A little donation of your love helps save lives!
