Sewing oronasal masks for a good cause

On the first weekend in May the sewing machines at Halfar in Bielefeld were buzzing. After the Bielefeld-based bag makers had received a request for help from the Dutch Rotary Club Epe in the last week of April, some employees from Halfar as well as members of the Epe Rotary Club came together to actively help. Divided into small, spatially separated working groups, a total of 500 oronasal masks were sewn together for the good cause. These were then handed over to the Dutch Rotary Club Epe to be passed on to a Dutch nursing home that was particularly affected. Of course, the whole event took place in compliance with all hygiene rules. www.halfar.com
