Many people in developing countries don’t have the option of social distancing or frequent handwashing to slow the spread of COVID-19. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now says cloth face masks, along with hand washing and social distancing may help reduce transmission.
We need your help to sew cloth face masks to help us reach men, women and children in vulnerable communities.
After all, Lutheran World Relief was founded 75 years ago to help neighbors around the globe who were suffering during World War II. What will be our generation’s legacy during this time of crisis?
