The Women’s Fellowship of the United Church and many other ladies in and around Hermanus, and even as far as Stanford, are still actively busy with the making of protective cloth face masks.
“We have up to 30 ladies voluntarily making masks, with some having taken a break after three weeks and new volunteers joining the project,” says Denise Eady of the Women’s Fellowship of the United Church.
“We have passed the 3 000 mark already and have distributed more than 2 000 masks to various essential services, including various doctors’ rooms and departments at Hermanus Mediclinic, the Zwelihle Clinic, the Moffat Hall in Mount Pleasant, the Zwelihle Youth Café at the RDP Centre, Siyazama Service Centre, Hawston Clinic, Hermanus SAPS, Huis Lettie Theron, Just Care Aftercare, Yomelelani Pre-School in Zwelihle and the Hermanus Provincial Hospital.
“We will continue making masks indefinitely and any volunteers are welcome to join as and help with the sewing of masks.” Denise Eady can be contacted on 082 902 1245. Anyone who wishes to contribute towards the cost of the mask-making can deposit donations in the following bank account:
