As the worldwide pandemic continues, URI groups are rising to the challenge by mobilizing members to create face masks and distribute them among vulnerable populations. In the photo above, a member of Global Compassion (a URI member group in Cameroon) sits at her sewing machine with a pile of masks ready to be distributed for free to adults and children in need. Child and Youth Development Through Inter-Religious Init., another URI member group, runs similar programs in Sri Lanka.
