Cloths and all the necessary supplies for making the items were bought, the a local textile company called Pareschi performed a laser cutting of the cloths to accelerate the production process. After that, the materials were donated to seamstress linked to 4 institutions: Padre Aroldo Institute, Campo Belo Health Center, and the Samba Schools Águias de Ouro and Acadêmicos do Tatuapé, all located in the state of Sao Paulo, the epicenter of the pandemic in the country.
In all of these institutes, community seamstresses managed to follow their crafts and finished the masks, which were donated to the residents of the respective surroundings population, benefiting people in areas of greater vulnerability and prioritizing groups at risk.
