The 'Bibi' Mask by Bibi and Zaky
The story behind the 'Bibi' Mask - One specific sewer for The Collective Thread, Bibi, with the help of her husband, both refugees, made over 4,000 masks for TCT. Zaky, a former Afghan interpreter for the US military, was laid off early from his job and the only income they had was from TCT’s mask making project. Amazingly, through hard work and dedication, this project has provided enough income for a down payment on a home for Bibi and Zaky, an American Dream for sure. In the midst of crisis TCT has experienced hope in the community they serve through stories like these.
