September 15, 2020 – Thanks to the MS Team Croatia, high school students from Vinkovci are providing masks for people with multiple sclerosis.

People with multiple sclerosis, especially those on the second line of therapy to slow down the disease, have extremely weakened immunity and extra caution is needed whenever it comes to viral infections, especially today in the age of the coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to sponsors and donors, the MS team Croatia provided funds for masks for the sick, and the Vinkovci secondary vocational school joined the action, which will make masks for the sick until the celebration of the National Multiple Sclerosis Day on September the 26th, reports MS Team Croatia.

The students of this school are working hard these days to make all the masks ready by this date. Given the interest of MS’s donors, the MS Croatia Team has already ordered an additional amount for distribution after the National Day to provide a mask for everyone in therapy.

“The Vinkovci secondary vocational school immediately responded to our request, and we decided that the students should make the masks because in this way we sensitise them and they learn indirectly about what it is like to live with multiple sclerosis, which affects over 7,000 people in Croatia. The principal and teachers of the school recognised our goals, and now they’re making the masks at a symbolic price that covers only the cost of the material. And it is especially interesting that the logo of our association is made as an embroidery, not as a sticker, so the mask is special and has a different meaning for all of us,” said Mirjam Jukic, president of the MS Team Croatia Association, who is especially grateful to this school and students and all sponsors.

The masks will be delivered to the branches of the Association, where socialising with MS Pilates is organised, and to the University Hospital Centre Zagreb, where most patients are treated. The plans are to order an additional number of masks for other clinical centres where a larger number of patients are treated.
