Masks for Melbourne by Himilo Community Connect

Table of contents

Masks for Melbourne is a youth-led initiative to sew reusable masks and help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Melbourne's West Heidelberg and neighbouring suburbs. The project is supported by Himilo Community Connect and Banyule Community Health. For every mask sold, someone in need will receive food relief. This makes a difference by connecting and strengthening the community through good will, providing food relief and masks.
