Local fashion designer joins in the fight against Covid-19

DENNILTON – In an effort to intensify the fight against the spread of the novel coronavirus, a local fashion designer in Dennilton outside Groblersdal has embarked on a face-masks donation initiative in the area.

The local fashion designer, Bagegeang De Klerk is using his craft to ensure that the needy in the area are also protected against the spread of Covid-19.

The face-masks’ donations drive has so far benefited residents in surrounding villages including Ntwane, Taereng, Phucukani and Lusaka.

To ensure the social distancing protocol, the fashion designer conducts door-to-door visits to deliver the masks.

According to De Klerk, the ongoing programme is aimed at ensuring safety of residents during the COVID-19 period.

 “I became concerned as a fashion designer to see a lot of people contracting the virus daily. I decided to get involved and design the masks to be distributed free of charge to the needy people around the villages,” said Deklerk.

 She said she donated three-layer masks that effectively protect people from COVID-19. “The fabric I use to make the masks is 100% cotton and could not be penetrated by the virus. My advice to people is to check the quality of the mask before they wear as some are exceptionally light and can expose them to the virus easily,” advised Deklerk.

 She added that the programme continued and aimed to donate more masks as a result of the rapid spread of the pandemic.

 “More donations will be made soon as I have noticed that there will be a demand due to the rising number of people contracting the virus,” she said.
