The current toll of coronavirus cases in our national capital has risen to 1,578 with a death toll of 32. These desperate times require everyone’s contribution to come ahead and take a stand for their fellow citizens. While a sizeable population stays indoors to combat this pandemic, the poor and needy are not left with many options. In such a dire time, a ray of hope appears. A Delhi based fashion designer makes khadi masks for the poor.
What’s In It?
Delhi-based fashion designer Manish Tripathi is designing khadi face masks to fight COVID-19 and he has a higher cause. “I am preparing these masks for the people who can’t afford to buy masks. Then I will try selling them online and whatever amount is collected will be contributed to the PM-CARES Fund to fight the coronavirus,” Manish said. Manish tweeted about his initiative and mentioned that during these tough times, as a responsible citizen its everyone’s duty to distribute handmade cotton masks to people who can’t afford it.

The fashion designer has also launched a collection of cheerful face masks. He believes that positivity is the best way to combat the fear against the virus. The selfless Delhi based fashion designer believes that COVID-19 is a long drawn battle. And masks will actually become an integral part of our lives. So he decided to make masks that will not incite fear rather will bring a smile on people’s faces. His collection of masks are fashioned for all occasions, they are sweat absorbent, made of cotton and home washable. They can be washed, ironed and reused.
As everyone is urged to wear face masks, a sizeable population is not economically adept enough to buy for themselves or their family. In such a case, Manish’s initiative comes as a breath of fresh air. Manish’s masks which are made using cotton and khadi fabrics are also washable which means people can continue to use them for a longer time. Manish also informs that he will try selling them online. And the money collected will be donated to the PM-CARES Fund to support the fight against coronavirus.
