Luxembourg | Europe
As the Covid-19 pandemic unfolded, Iraqi refugee Mohammed Alhashimi and his wife Smaher discussed how to help their new country of Luxembourg in return for taking in their family. Mohammed, son of a tailor, and Smaher, a seamstress, put their skills to use and sewed masks. They have produced 14,000 masks for free with the help of their two children. Their masks have been distributed across Luxembourg, even reaching the country’s royal palace who thanked them for their work.
