Busega Scotland, Covid-19 and a talent for needlework, link Happiness Charles, in Mwanza, Tanzania and Anne Grant, in Elgin, Scotland. Happiness is a member of our Moving-on Project and Anne is a Busega Scotland trustee.
There is an article on the website News Page, 180520 – PPE, which tells the story of Happiness making face coverings. Anne is doing the same. While the skills are similar, the motivations are different. Happiness is trying to make ends meet, while Anne is raising funds for Busega Scotland (and to give folk like Happiness a chance in life). Both women are united in their fight against the Corona virus.
If you need a face covering, we are sorry that we can’t get one from Happiness, but Anne has sewing kits available. The kit has enough fabric to make two adult sizes or a small adult and child size. Full instructions are included.
The cost is £7.50 per kit (including post and packaging).
If you would like to make a purchase please contact John and Christine on email@example.com and we can arrange things for you.
Technical details: eco-friendly face coverings, reusable, washing at 60 Celsius, 100% cotton, pleated, nose band, with pocket to insert your own filter.
