Video: Create your won Sanctuary Mask

Thank you to Cork Migrant Centre Co-ordinator Dr Naomi Masheti and the talented seamstress Barivule for sharing her knowledge of how to make the masks.

Here’s the story of The Sanctuary Masks Initiative …

We are so blown away by the positive response that Sanctuary Mask Initiative have received since their appearance on RTE’s Nationwide last night!

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch enquiring about masks, however please note that the masks being made are being reserved for those in extremely vulnerable positions in society, like Direct Provision centres and nursing homes in Cork city and county.

If you would like to learn more about Sanctuary Mask Initiative, how to help or to donate you can visit their social media or their Go Fund Me page!
