A UK-based charity is donating much-needed face masks to rural villages in India.
With the help and permission of local authorities, Wells on Wheels (www.wellsonwheels.co.uk) have committed to donating 10,000 masks to residents of Maharashtra – a state in Western India which is currently battling with rising daily new cases and deaths from Coronavirus.
Founder of Wells on Wheels, Shaz Memon, has made the decision to help these underprivileged after identifying strong inequality in the region.
Wells on Wheels have a strong history helping those in remote regions of India. Previously, the charity had donated thousands of ‘Water Wheels’ to remote parts of the country – a large drum fitted with handles that can be rolled along the ground with ease.
