Mask-making at the Foyer de Jeunes Filles
May 18, 2020
Over the weekend, Le Korsa supported the fabrication of over 1500 masks at the Foyer de Jeunes Filles. Several of the tailors involved had family members afflicted by Covid 19; they were eager to contribute their skills to help stem the spread of the virus, which has infected over 2000 people in Senegal.
As Maimouna Ka Sow, director of the Foyer said, the initiative “augments our response to the pandemic, but also provides much-needed income for people affected by Covid 19, especially during the period of Ramadan.”
