Fulbright Alumna Teams Up to Provide 55,000 Masks in Pakistan

Responding to the shortage of face masks in underserved communities of Pakistan, Fulbright alumna Salima Hakim came up with a solution to produce 55,000 masks for those in need: mobilizing women empowerment program (Mumkin) trainees.

Thanks to Hakim’s efforts with the trainees, she has been able to give masks to the trainees and donate masks to those in need, thanks to good citizens who made donations or bought extra masks that could be then given away for free. 

Revenue generated from the sales of masks has also been distributed among the trainees who were involved in the production.
