Charity donates 10,000 masks to remote villages in India to help fight Covid-19.
A UK-based charity is donating much-needed face masks to rural villages in India. With the help and permission of local authorities, Wells on Wheels have committed to donating 10,000 masks to residents of Maharashtra – a state in Western India which is currently battling with rising daily new cases and deaths from Coronavirus.
Founder of Wells on Wheels, Shaz Memon, has made the decision to help these underprivileged after identifying strong inequality in the region.
“The inequality embarrasses and upsets me,” Shaz explains. “The underprivileged have the right to feel ‘safer’ to protect their families. They are just as scared as anyone else and are more exposed as no care is accessible. I am committed to making serious changes.”
