LEAF MASK is an easy, clean, and cheap solution that protects African lives from respiratory diseases. COVID-19 has made breathing a life threat. The only vaccine, for now, is the mask. But developing countries, including Africa, cannot afford the daily supply of disposable masks. So, they use old clothes or vinyl as a substitute, but they can instead cause infection when managed without clean water. LEAF MASK is an optimized solution their environment. Consisting of semi-permanent plastic clips and leaves available for free, LEAF MASK is a sustainable solution that promises the alienated the basic right to breathe freely, safely and equally.
