The leaders of the participating NGOs and communities of the “Community Based Environment Management Programme – Gin Ganga Mitiyawatha” funded by USAID – Development Innovations Group took the initiative to produce 1000 units of homemade masks as their contribution towards taking precaution against COVID – 19 pandemic affecting our country. All these masks have since been donated.
