Our focus is on masks and the need to create AWARENESS, ADVOCATE and ACT on ensuring #masks4all.

AWARENESS: DIY masks

ADVOCACY: Mandating masks

ACTION: Consulting on masks production and distribution

 


TYPES OF MASKS


3-LAYER PROTECTIVE MASK (RECOMMENDED MODEL)

These re-usable three-layer masks are sturdy, bleachable and washable at high temperatures. They have been recommended in Germany to be worn by cancer patients and other immune-suppressive patients, their caretakers and social service workers who do not have access to other masks.

Disclaimer: These masks are not intended to replace N95 or surgical masks. They do not have proper medical respiratory protection nor medical certification. They should not be used by healthcare workers who are in close vicinity of COVID-19 patients but will protect against large droplets and prevent people from touching their faces while outside. They may, however, increase the lifespan of a surgical or N95 mask if worn over it.

HOW DID THE BANGALORE MASK PROJECT START?


An initiative started by The Vine Bangalore’s own Event Manager, Jana. Amidst the craziness and uncertainty of the last few day’s lockdown announcements, she saw a similar project discussed by local hospitals back in her hometown in Germany and realized this was exactly what a city like Bangalore and other places in India needs.

Jana quickly involved our Vine team members. She got on her sewing machine and we created simple and easy to understand instructions for three different types of masks. The Mask Project WhatsApp was then created to gather people all over Bangalore into one place who could sew, staple, or just donate supplies. We are currently working on getting the instructions translated into both local as well as other languages.

Do you know how to sew? Don’t have a clue how to sew but own a stapler? Literally only have a water bottle and a pair of scissors on hand? There is an easy option for everyone! We need everyone to share this with their community to help provide masks for everyone in Bangalore!
