‘MAKE-A-MASK Campaign’ Collaboration Between
Humanity First USA and Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Auxiliary USA

April 22, 2020 (Newswire.com) –
Humanity First USA and Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Auxiliary (AMWA) USA are collaborating on a national level to launch the “Make-A-Mask” Campaign. This ‘sew-at-home’ initiative of non-surgical face masks is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the CDC’s latest recommendation that everyone should try to wear masks in public.
Currently, the USA is facing an unprecedented global situation. Most of the public is making an effort to mitigate the fallout from this virus. People are working from home, self-isolating, staying indoors and increasing handwashing. However, we need to think about the front-line workers, the doctors, the nurses, the paramedics and people providing essential goods and services. Humanity First needs to find further ways to protect their workers so they can protect others.
Keeping this in mind Humanity First has partnered with AMWA, who has a robust organizational structure within the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. AMWA consists of local branches linked with regional and national management. This women’s network is present in almost every major city of the United States. They have always been at the forefront of serving humanity with many local humanitarian relief efforts.
The masks made by AMWA will be distributed to people in dire need around the nation. This will include front-line workers, essential workers, the elderly and immune-compromised, who are in need of PPE.

This campaign is part of Humanity First USA’s greater campaign of “HFWECARE”, which is providing direct humanitarian relief in response to COVID-19. Under this campaign, they are running food pantries, collecting PPE for front-line workers and organizing nationwide.
