ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Masks for Humanity aims to provide those in need with proper protection against air-borne viruses and bacteria. During the outbreak of the pandemic, many were left without appropriate mask protection.

With your help, we will provide struggling communities and institutions with FPP2 face masks.

Our focus is directed but not limited to school teachers, old age homes, medical workers, and frontline workers.

THE BACKGROUND

Masks for Humanity… Where do we start?

After all the “new normals” we were forced to get used to this year and the daily confrontation of airborne “enemies” our global situation needs no introduction.

In South Africa, the pandemic has not only exposed our healthcare-based vulnerabilities but also threatened our fragile business and employment situation. This combination of disease and close-to-home liabilities sparked the merger of businesses, investors, and technology suppliers to take a leap of faith and invest in the local manufacturing and production of respirator face masks.

This is how Masks for Humanity came to life!

The effectiveness of masks as the first line of defence has been widely documented and advised. Yet, while such a simple piece of equipment can provide significant protection, many are still left without it including teachers, old-age homes, medical workers, frontline workers and many more.

Our masks are produced according to local regulations and FFP2 standards.

What makes the FFP2 face mask better than a normal loose-fitting face mask?

  • Well, respirators like the FFP2 are tight-fitting masks designed to create a facial seal with non-valved respirators providing two-way protection filtering the inflow and outflow of air.
  • With a maximum leakage of 8% and a minimum of 94% of inflow air filtered these types of masks are designed to protect the wearer (when worn properly).

Who should wear a respirator? In short, anyone who wants to protect themselves and in particular healthcare workers and caregivers who work in high-risk transmission areas.

THE PLAN

So how do I get involved?

If you have or know of an institution in your community in need of respirator face masks you can begin by registering them at masksforhumanity.africa and we will take it from there. After they have been registered donations can be made directly to them as facilitated through the Jumpstarter platform.

If you are not sure who to donate to, but still feel the need to support this cause you can make donations at the Jumpstarter platform.

And if you can’t donate, don’t worry, there are other ways to help!

Firstly, you can share this initiative on all your social media platforms (yes, the more people who know about it the more they can help).

Secondly, if you know any influencer that would be willing to share this initiative, send them our way!

Remember no matter how big or small, every donation counts. Go check out our campaign at masksforhumanity.africa and get behind us in supporting our communities.
