As already written, during the epidemic we joined Christian Blessing Community Volunteer Headquarters. One of the first challenges of the pandemic was the need for protection.
We managed to react very quickly, and in just 2-3 days to organize a whole VOLUNTEER SEWING DEPARTMENT for sewing masks 😷.
✅We gathered a team of dressmakers who volunteered for their work and talent to serve others for free.
✅Bedding, men's shirts and other items that could be remade to sew masks were sorted out at the Foundation's Warehouse.
✅Many more fabrics were collected
✅We managed to agree with the company, which donated 1365 m !!! erasers for a good cause. Oh .. at this time to get an eraser - was a real quest 🙂
A few points, but in fact - a colossal job. The coordination of this department actually gave me a very cool experience. After masks - to organize food kits or other work - it's a trifle 😝 The first days were a 15-hour work (register routes, bring there, pick up there, give instructions, a great lack of materials, the same was shared at a minimum and delivered constantly). It is good that Mariana Pih helped with technical issues of tailoring. Galya Dumanska - with data.
And I certainly wouldn't have managed here without the help of the Mobile Group, which had dozens of routes all over Lviv every day and was constantly in touch with me… Ruslan Zubik Taras Zvarych - thanks!
But in a few days - the process was perfectly optimized and adjusted. And do you know what the results are ???
‼ ️‼ ️🥳🤩SEWN 1664 masks !!!! FREE! All materials were organized for as little as UAH 0!
Here is the power of unity!
Now you can discuss a lot about the feasibility of using masks, and in the beginning, when they were in short supply, in pharmacies cost 19 UAH and it was difficult to get, this activity was extremely relevant.
Masks are actively distributed to people along with food kits, many were handed over to doctors who applied without any means of protection at the beginning, children in hospitals, the military, priests and people in need.
We still have a lot of ready-made masks - so who needs it - contact us!
Sincere thanks to all the tailors, volunteer couriers, all those who donated the fabric and those involved in the process !!!
Ps no child was injured 😎 The first photo is a picture that perfectly conveys the process of work of seamstresses and mine 😄, because in quarantine it is not easy to work with children nearby
- with Galya Dumanska and 14 others.
