Expert needlewomen pitch in to help by using their expertise to help beat the coronavirus in Alfaz

YOLI: One of the 11 experts making facemasks

ELEVEN dressmakers have set to work, making reusable facemasks.
They belong to a workshop organised by Pangea, Alfaz’s Migrants’ Attention Office, which provides legal and administrative advice to non-Spanish residents, organising workshops and courses to assist their integration into local life.
The 11 women, all of them originally from outside Spain, decided they wanted to help to stop the Covid-19 pandemic by doing one of the things they do best and sewing much-needed facemasks.
After explaining what they wanted to do to Other Nationalities councillor Martina Mertens, the town hall has provided the material suitable for surgical masks and will later distribute the masks to Alfaz-based associations.
“They sew marvellously,” Mertens said, thanking the 11 needlewomen for their generosity in contributing their time and effort in producing masks to protect the local population.
