Gumi Bamboo’s next mission is joining forces with Yayasan Harapan Baru providing the Puskesmas (Health clinics across Lombok) to provide health workers with protective cotton masks.
They are donation 700 masks and you can also participate to help them as the local government imposed the use of cloth masks for everyone. Donating masks is a way to give direct to the community and health workers across the island of Lombok.
So far they have recieved enough donations to make 200 masks and are in the process of making 350 masks with their savings.
As the wave of unemployment is hitting our villages hard – these masks are the current solution to provide work beyond Gumi Bamboo’s artisans. In total, 50 mothers get access to work through these masks.
Everyone is hit hard by this crisis. But now more than ever we need to stand together. With evey donation, you are helping our local community access to work and keep the villages safe. Furthermore, it empowers them to help those who become frontliners.
Let’s stay safe and connected
Sending our love and warm regards,
Gumi Bamboo Team
