This week, the Alam Sehat Lestari (ASRI) Medical Center, our partner in Borneo, distributed 1,000 cloth face masks to community members confronting COVID-19 in Kayong Utara. By commissioning the production of cloth face masks, ASRI is empowering women who are grateful for the opportunity to supplement their income during this challenging time. By distributing them in partnership with local government at the Medical Center and in communities, ASRI hopes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Through partnership with local government and the Kayong Utara District Head, ASRI is making an even greater impact for rainforest communities and all who benefit from their guardianship.
Many thanks to Ibu Nur, Ibu Ros, Ibu Ida, Ibu Santi, Ibu Hai, and Yuli for making face mask production and distribution a success!
