Help make face masks for aviation crews
Do your aviation crews need masks? Complete the form below.
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, healthcare workers are the most exposed to COVID-19. Governments and many organizations are working hard to ensure that adequate numbers of masks are available to protect them.
Other essential workers like aviation professionals also experience high levels of exposure to the virus yet face masks may not be readily available to most of them.
Air crews do not have the option of practising physical distancing. Ground crew must continue to handle baggage and parcels, clean aircraft, and touch surfaces that may be covered with COVID-19 virus waiting to be picked up and brought in contact with the mouth, nose, or eyes of these essential professionals. Many aviation professionals have already tested positive for COVID-19. Wearing fabric masks may lower their risk.
Spend an hour or two making face masks for aviation crews who do not have any.
Protect aviation’s unsung heroes who are putting their health at risk to ensure that people and goods get to their destination during the global COVID-19 health crisis.
No sewing machine is required. The material needed can be found in most homes.
Donate your masks locally as you wish or connect directly with an aviation organization in our database. iWOAW does not coordinate mask shipments.
