“I run a business making anything from wedding dresses to matric dance dresses.
Lockdown has not been easy on anyone. Businesses all over were faced with many challenges, some of which included retrenching workers. All my wedding dresses were either postponed or cancelled. I realised I had to do something, and fast, to be able to still pay my rent and my staff. I immediately registered as an essential service making material face masks. I would like to thank you for placing an order with me to make masks.
I remember phoning my one seamstress that hasn’t worked for a while and asking if she was interested in sewing from home making masks. She burst into tears, saying she only had food left for a day or two. This opportunity gave 7 seamstresses, 2 out of work Uber drivers, and 2 factories with staff of 10 workers each a chance to provide for their families.”
