When sharing her work on social networks, Ms. Yen received the encouragement from many people.  Many individuals and organizations contacted and expressed their desire to be donated and shared how to make the shields.  From that motivation, teacher Yen has made about 600 face shields to give some commune health stations in Khoai Chau district; COVID-19 Steering Committee for prevention and control in Phuong Chieu commune and Hien Nam ward (Hung Yen city); Farmer Association of Hung Yen province; Public Security of Hung Yen City, some COVID-19 Prevention and Control points in Hien Nam ward (Hung Yen city) ....

 

Her face shields are so large that can cover both eyes and neck.  The face shields were made of mica and foam, so it should be worn very gently, comfortably, preventing splashes effectively when talking.  The face shield could be put off and cleaned easily ... Teacher Yen has paid herself the entire cost of buying materials.  In order to make the the face shields sturdier and more beautiful, she also invested a button press machine.  

 

Currently, her husband and two children are also joining hands, and participating in many steps such as cutting mica plastic, gluing elastic bands, arranging shields ... "We work until 11, 12 pm to make shields every day. Although it is hard, I feel very happy because I have contributed small and useful things” she said happily.

 

At present, the teacher Hai Yen continues to make more face shields in order to hand over the fronts and drastically join hands to fight against COVID-19.
