Providing masks to refugees

washable masks

We receive a lot of clothing with disposable masks in the pockets – which we of course dispose of. So we are now including new washable masks with the clothing when we return it to camp residents.

Thanks to Refugee4Refugees for providing us with 800 adult masks, and dozens of children’s masks.

Since we started including masks we have noticed a significant drop in the number of disposable masks in clothing, and thanks to the work of the Starfish Foundation most refugees in the camp now seem to be wearing washable masks.
