Charity initiative making face masks for Ireland

Sewing Machines

Sewing Machines donated in 2019. (Pre Covid19)

Last year hundreds of sewing machines were donated in Co. Louth to the Crosscause Charity Project in Ghana so that women could make clothes to help support their communities. Now those communities in the form of the “Global Mamas” project are making protective face masks which are now for sale back in Ireland.

This amazing project means the charity donations from Ireland have actually produced products for sale back here which will help raise funds to sustain the project back in Ghana.

“This is a fine example of how donations from Ireland can make a real difference to communities in West Africa who need help. Financial donations are always welcome – but this a real example of helping people to help themselves as these women are highly skilled and take huge pride in making these high quality colorful face masks” said Crosscause Charity Co-ordination Conor Hughes.

The facemasks are  :-

  • washable
  • double layered
  • adjustable
  • 100% cotton
  • filter pocketed

CrosscauseThis unique project is an impressive example of sustainable charity and as the country has moved towards having a requirement to wear facemask on Public Transport – it couldn’t be timed better. The masks are €10 each with all funds raised going back to the Crosscause Charity Project in Ghana, West Africa.

The masks can be purchased from Crosscause in Blackrock, Co. Louth via or Conor on 0879674829.
