Learning during containment that a Decathlon diving mask can be transformed into protection for resuscitation caretakers, Sandrine, a mother from the 4th arrondissement, struggles to find donors.

Once the mobilization is over and 18 masks have been collected from the inhabitants of the neighborhood and beyond, the former lawyer finds a new mission.

During her shopping, she noticed that many people, especially shopkeepers and the elderly, did not wear masks. She decided to create a group to make masks, this time out of cloth.

Laure, a guidance counsellor, on forced leave, and about twenty little hands come to the aid of the "sub-gifted" sewing teacher and start making masks to Afnor standards.

So they have been making about a hundred a week since mid-April, recycling their percal sheets, half of their poplin shirts, buying fabric.
