COVID-19: Afghan Refugee in US Sews 150 Masks per Day

Ebrahim Mohammad Eshaq has been dubbed the “mask master” by his co-workers at Ventura Manufacturing, reports MLive.

The Afghan refugee, who is now settled in the state of Michigan in the U.S., can sew between 120 to 150 masks a day for local healthcare centres to use during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“It makes me feel proud to be able to help the community, to help prevent people from catching the virus,” Eshaq told the publication.

He started at Ventura manufacturing other products but when the pandemic hit, they began manufacturing masks for distributing locally.

Eshaq was 15 when the family left Afghanistan and sought refuge in Iran, before moving to Turkey and finally resettling in the U.S. in 2019.
