Volunteers in Bahrain make 40,000 face masks

Volunteers in Bahrain have made more than 40,000 face masks that are set to be distributed to citizens and residents for free.

Productive families and graduates were trained at social centres before being given the raw materials and a safe location to produce the masks.

The volunteer effort was supported by the Royal Humanitarian Foundation (RHF) and Batelco, while the Ministry of Social Development provided the materials.

It is hoped that these volunteers will provide 100,000 face masks.

Labour and Social Development Minister Jameel bin Mohammed Ali-Humaidan said, “The face masks which meet the standards set by the Ministry of Health are distributed to citizens and residents free of charge.”

Face masks have been compulsory in Bahrain since the start of April.

If you’d like to make your own, the Ministry of Health has released a guide to help.
