Women from the Dawoodi Bohra community in Bahrain were invited by the Royal Humanitarian Foundation (RHF) to sew facemasks, which are to be distributed to school students for protection against the Covid-19. A total of 2,521 facemasks of two sizes were made—one for children between the age of six to nine and another between 10 and 15.
‘We are privileged to have played a part in RHF’s nationwide initiative to produce face masks and distribute them free of cost, as the Kingdom fights against the Covid-19 pandemic,’ said a Dawoodi Bohra Women’s Committee member in Bahrain, Munira Shafiq. The RHF has also awarded a certificate of appreciation to Bohra women for their valuable contribution in the facemask initiative.
As part of the community’s global philanthropic endeavour Project Rise, Bohra volunteers in different parts of the world continue to mobilise efforts and extend whatever help they can to people in need.
In Bahrain, the members have been distributing food and water to labourers and providing thank you fruit baskets to healthcare workers, while supporting various organisations like the RHF, the Capital Governorate, the Ministry of Health and other initiatives.
