A seamstress in Pahang has put her sewing skills to good use during the movement control order (MCO). In the last three weeks, Halimatun Azahari has stitched over 200 batik face masks, and given them out to postal officers, security guards and neighbours.

The Beserah-based woman doesn’t mind going the extra mile to help others as she knows there is a shortage of disposable face masks amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. She spends between two and six hours each day stitching these items.
