eCoexist responded almost immediately to the Covid lockdown by training our womens group in Ahwalwadi to make reusable cotton masks. We supplied these masks to hospitals to the police force and to industries who were still operational. As the demand increased we brought together a collective of five other NGOS to pass on the requests for the masks. We also created Do It Yourself posters in nine Indian languages and translated videos on the importance of cloth masks into four languages to encourage people to wear masks to stay safe. This quick response enabled the women of Ahwalwadi to cope with the loss of their husbands jobs during the lock down.
