Different organizations and individuals in Maun last week came together and donated face masks to help learners shield themselves and reduce their chances of contracting the killer Corona virus.
Last Thursday Maun Administration Authority (MAA), received a combined total of four thousand and eight hundred masks from Project Sanitise Maun and a local business man and politician, Kostantinos Markus.
Project Sanitize Maun (PSM) donated 2200 masks for standard seven learners in the MAA area which is a fraction of the 22 000 masks which they have pledged to donate to learners through the district council.
According to the Project’s chairperson, Tebogo Boalotswe, the remaining masks are to be handed over to the council before the rest of the classes open, “We brought the masks for standard seven because they will be the first batch to open. The rest of the masks are still being made by local tailors.”
Boalotswe added that when they pledged to donate the masks to the council early this month, the council stated that it needed at least 21 200 masks for their primary school learners and, “we made the extra 800 so that they can be given to needy students in secondary schools.”
Meanwhile the family of Former Man East Member of Parliament, Markus, donated 2 600 masks and noted that they will be given to students in Maun East constituency.
