In this time of crisis, we have put our sewing cooperative to work making high-quality, reusable masks to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic.
Bela Masks are made from 4 layers of fabric. The outer layer and inner layer are cotton. The two inner layers are non-woven filtration layers. (No mask can completely stop all virus particles, but the added filtration layers help a lot!)
All masks are secured with elastic or cotton straps (depending on availability of materials) and have a wire nose-piece that can be shaped to your face for a better fit.
For those in the Chapala, Jalisco area, the masks can be ordered at BelaFemenina.com/reusable-masks.
During the COVID-19 crisis, many of the local people have lost their jobs and are struggling to provide food for their families. We are partnering with people in local villages, like Angeles in San Luis Soyatlan, who have a heart, but no resources.
As of April 10, the crisis has already reached a point where people are going to their neighbors asking for a plate of food. As the government-ordered shutdown continues, it will become even more difficult for neighbors to help neighbors.
We are a proud partner of a grassroots organization, Bridges of Hope International, from Lethbridge Alberta. Alivio International is fully accountable to the Board of Directors of Bridges of Hope.
