Protecting the Elderly from Covid-19

By Dom Williams | Founder and Director

Facemask usage training
Facemask usage training

As many countries make wearing facemasks obligatory due to Covid-19 our Plan Corte (sewing machines) in Lake Atitlán, Guatemala so far has made and distributed 1,000 double-layered washable masks to the elderly and 300 families who cannot afford them.

We plan to continue producing more to make sure that anyone who needs a mask has one, especially the elderly and physically disabled, including amputees due to diabetes, another high risk group.

It is generally accepted that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 will affect us all for months and possibly years to come. Over the long-term we aim to provide hand sanitizer and supplies of soap for all our students in Honduras, Ecuador, Peru and Guatemala for when they enter and leave the schools each day to reassure parents that it is a safe place and also to reduce the chance of bringing the virus into the schools and taking the virus back home and potentially afflicting the elderly.

Once the various country lock-downs are lifted and prices get back to normal we will try and source all this in bulk so we can budget for the coming months and years, although whatever the cost turns out to be it will be money well-spent in the long-run.

Whilst we know times are hard at the moment and the economic outlook is uncertain, we would appreciate any donation to this page so we can continue to protect the elderly in our countries, not just now with masks though in the long-term future with soaps and hand sanitzers for the schools to stop Covid-19 entering the homes.

Thank you so much in advance and please stay safe.

Cheers
