Making masks

Something that's been important to us since the beginning, is making sure that our camps are created by Tanzanian artisans. Baadiye has been part of the Nomad story for decades; an old hand in the tent making industry he made the very first Greystoke tents, complete with scalloped edges, back in the early nineties and has been sewing everything and anything that can be sown for Nomad ever since.

Given the current crisis, we joined forces with our local Rotary club who tasked Baadiye with making face masks for our staff and wider community. Of course, he was up for the task and with his old manual singer, his needle hummed as he stitched over 1000 masks.

The masks will help keep our teams safe while they're at home, and have also been distributed in the local NICU unit where they're seriously short of PPE.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our fund so far and made this work possible. Your generosity means the world to us.
