The distribution of the masks, which started on Wednesday, 27 January 2021, represents the second welfare gesture by TrustAfrica Foundation to provide relief in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Senegal. It will be recalled that an initial sum of six million dollars was released to the Senegalese authorities when the first cases of COVID-19 were announced in the country. The same gesture has also been extended to Zimbabwe and The Gambia.
