Sewing for a cause.


She's only nine but this young lady is doing her part to keep our frontliners safe.

Nur Afia Qistina Zamzuri is using her sewing skills to put together personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical staff at the Tuanku Ampuan Najihah Hospital (HTAN) in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan.

According to a report in Malay Mail quoting Astro Awani, Afia has spent her spare time learning how to sew since she was five.

Her mother, Hasnah Hud, said her girl wanted to help when she heard that there was a shortage of PPE in the country.

 

Determined to help

“When I told Afia about my wish to sew PPE, she said she wanted to jump on board to help as well.

“All of the PPE that we’re producing now were completely sewn by Afia. I just helped to neaten things up around the collar area,” said Hasnah.

The young seamstress can produce a full PPE set in an hour, and she's already created 100 sets that have been delivered to frontline workers at HTAN.

Bravo Afia!
