We are supporting the Government’s efforts around educating citizens around the importance of wearing masks.”

At ApnaMask, we are thrilled to have more strong voices join us to help build awareness around home made masks. Having Remo D’Souza launch the Dharavi Dream Project and Shantanu Maheshwari adding his steps too will help us deliver the message especially for the youth as we encourage people to pledge and make their own mask at home.” (IANS)
