Meet The Makers
Halima and her family moved to Riverdale, Md., from Afghanistan a year ago when she, her husband and eight children fled Afghanistan. She has been making masks with her two daughters – Asma and Husna – in between their virtual schooling. She will be using the money she makes from the masks to help support her family of 10 and is giving some to her daughters so they can buy anything they want.
Bibi and husband and four sons (pictured above) moved to Riverdale, Md., in February just before COVID hit. Her husband was an interpreter with the U.S. military before they fled. She is using the money she makes from the masks to send back to Afghanistan to support her family still there.
