QI Hong Kong staff produce DIY masks, hand sanitizers for charity
QI Hong Kong staff spent their recent Easter holiday preparing DIY masks and hand sanitizers which were later sold to raise funds for Taarana school for children with special needs.
A total of 22 staff had prepared the items at home while the rest of the staff generously supported the event by buying the masks and hand sanitizers made by their colleagues.
One of the staff Arti Asawa said the recent COVID-19 situation made her realise that the volunteering activity should be something related to health.
“That’s why I prepared hand sanitizer which I felt could be more useful especially during this time,” she said.
Another staff Ann Cristobal said with the recent spread of COVID-19 and difficulty in finding surgical face masks, many have resorted to creating their own DIY masks.
“While not everyone has the resources or means to do it, we have gladly taken up this challenge and help to provide those who are in need. The DIY experience was fun and exciting, from sourcing fabrics to the final step of attaching the ear loops. This project was truly useful and meaningful, especially during these harsh times,” she said.
A total of HKD5125 (USD661.3) was collected from the sale of the masks and sanitizers. All proceeds were donated to Taarana school.
