Supporting the production of anti-COVID-19 masks in India
In Assam state, the weaving community, usually in high demand for the Bihu celebrations - cancelled this year due to the pandemic -
switched to producing washable masks and manufacturing hygiene kits to help protect against COVID-19. Distributed by Aide et Action to children and their families, these kits are also being sold in health centres and donated free of charge to carers, police and the general public. This support guarantees the income of many professionals, strongly impacted by the crisis.
