Hindu Dharmic Sabha to complete sewing 30,000 masks for free distribution


The Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha has expressed thanks what it said are “diligent and tireless” teams of persons who have volunteered to sew and distribute masks across the country in Essequibo, Berbice and Demerara.

The Sabha said the masks are made of 100% cotton and are distributed with instructions on care and how to wear the masks.

Masks are distributed for free in communities and many have already been distributed in Central Corentyne, East Coast Demerara, Georgetown, Upper Corentyne, West Berbice.

This will continue in other areas.

This week, the Sabha said it will complete 30,000 masks – crafting and distribution.

“This will be an ongoing process.

“We express our heartfelt appreciation to everyone who has responded to our appeal and supported, donated, sewed, or distributed,” the Sabha stated.

It added: “We are humbled to see the love and care that Guyanese have shown for each other during this process and that spirit must continue in this difficult period in our country when health and life are at risk.

“We salute all those who have answered this need whether individually and from many different groups, as correct masking along with social distancing and hand washing may save lives.”

The Sabha’s West Berbice Praant is also engaged in an ongoing exercise of giving food hampers to the elderly and underprivileged.

“However, we remind everyone that the best way to contain COVID-19 is to stay at home.”
