Masked Hero

Masked Heroes is a non-profit campaign aimed at limiting community transmission of the COVID-19 virus, which is crucial in flattening the curve and enabling health services to cope. As the epidemic unfolds, protection of frontline Community Care Workers is critical in preventing them from becoming both victims and vectors of infection. Community Care Workers include community health workers, emergency services personnel, social workers and social auxiliary workers, child and youth care workers, as well as food and relief workers across South Africa’s network of hundreds of non-government organisations (Connectors).

Dear Community Healthcare Workers
I hear my neighbours cheer every night for essential service workers. Even when you can’t hear us, please know we’re cheering for you.
Thank you for waking up every day and deciding to be brave. You’re my hero.
