Community comes together to sew masks

CityNews – 27th March 2020, villagers in Chang Puak Sub-district have come together to make masks to give out for free to other members of the community.

CityNews heard reports of a community coming together – while staying safely separated – at the Old Municipal Sports Stadium and went out to find that a number of locals were sitting at chairs and tables, nicely distant from one another, sewing masks.

These masks will be handed out to people who need them in the Chang Puak community.

The group is currently producing 200 masks per day including normal cloth masks and a higher grade mask which will be handed out to officials and personnel with higher risk of infection.
