Make-A-Mask


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 stitch-at-home of non-surgical face masks is a response to COVID-19 and CDC’s latest recommendation that everyone wear masks in public.
