President of the American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana, Ayesha Bedwei, visited the Fashion Connect Africa garment factory to interact with management and observe the production of face masks intended to be distributed for free in rural communities to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
The production of these face masks will be handled by the FCA Garment Factory, which is reputable for producing quality clothing materials, including face masks.
The chamber recently provided Fashion Connect Africa with the seed fund for the production of the first 5000 facemasks. This is in support of the organization’s One Million Facemasks for Rural Communities Project.
Fashion Connect Africa is an emerging social enterprise established to change lives in the creative industry. The project is aimed at protecting educating and empowering individuals and families living in rural communities by the wearing of face masks and practicing safety measures such as the washing of the hands and application of hand sanitizers.
