MASK ON CAMPAIGN

FreeWishes Foundation and Atlanta Sewing Style partner to provide needed masks

  

The COVID - 19 pandemic has hit every facet of the world and created a crisis that no one could have imagined a few weeks ago. As most people adapt to the new normal of staying quarantined to protect themselves from the coronavirus, healthcare professionals do not have this privilege. In addition, they do not even have enough supplies to protect themselves from contracting the coronavirus. 


We recognize how alarming and critical the need is for medical equipment, so we have stepped in to help, by ensuring that masks are provided to healthcare professionals and patients, currently hospitalized.  Healthcare professionals, on the frontlines of this pandemic, are possibly risking their lives. Last week many healthcare professionals and providers pleaded out to the nation for help, as they were experiencing an extreme shortage in medical supplies. In many instances, healthcare providers were asked to re-use masks or even wear bandanas as a replacement. Medical professionals voiced that this was risky and it could potentially expose them to the coronavirus. Within the past few days, healthcare professionals and first responders have tested positive for the coronavirus. Throughout the world doctors and nurses are dying.  This is very alarming. 


The foundation has collaborated with Atlanta Sewing Style, a local sewing company, who has organized a team of over 500 sewist to create, cut, sew and deliver the much-needed masks. “There is so much that needs to be done during this crisis and if everyone can step up in some way, we can all get through this together as we serve our community,” said Stephanie Jester. “I think that our healthcare professionals are the heroes in this situation and they are risking their lives for everyone, so it is our responsibility to help protect them.”

“It is important to my brother, Future and I that we are of service to our community, especially during this pandemic and throughout the year. This is why our family created the foundation”, added Tia-Wilburn Anderson, co –founder.
