The Brussels region has initiated a production chain of homemade masks, based on volunteer work and coordinated by EcoRes, in consortium with TRAVIE and Mad Home of Creators.
The masks are produced and distributed in 4 stages:
- The company TRAVIE takes care of the pre-cutting of materials.
- The kits are delivered by Urbike to a network of pre-qualified volunteers who sew at home.
- Once sewn, the cleanable and reusable masks are recovered and subjected to a quality control.
- Finally, the stock produced is made available to the Brussels government, which will distribute it to the institutions and services identified as priorities.
More than 1,500 volunteers already joined the project to manufacture anti-splash masks and it has been foreseen that at least 100,000 masks will be produced.
