At these times of need, Tago still provides for the community. This is part of our responsibility as a member of society.
Tago (M) Sdn Bhd, has teamed up with Komuniti Tukang Jahit (KTJ) to stitch 1,000 cloth-based face masks for those in need whilst providing an opportunity to single women, housewives, OKU and underprivileged women to supplement their income during and after the MCO in Malaysia.
We then contacted community leaders around our recently completed Anjali North Kiara project to identify suitable candidates who were not only interested in helping to produce the face masks but also needed the extra income. Within a week, three women from the neighbouring community signed up with KTJ and supported the non-governmental organisation’s existing community of tailors to create the reusable face masks.
All face masks, made with batik motifs, are targeted at the general public rather than healthcare professionals in the front lines against the Covid-19 pandemic..The cloth-based face masks were also tailored to be lightweight and have pockets for changeable tissue for short-time filtration.
Even with the face masks, we still encourage Malaysians to stay safe by practicing social distancing and to wash their hands regularly. We must all play our part during these challenging times.
