University College Dublin’s (UCD’s) craft and creative group, UCD Purl Jam, have been making heartfelt gifts and face masks for patients in hospitals and other vulnerable groups in kind gesture. UCD Purl Jam have recently set up two separate campaigns in aid of the Covid-19 crisis.
The UCD group have previously advocated for humanitarian causes, such as their recent project surrounding Climate Change. Their newest projects however, focus on some of the most exposed groups throughout the crisis, those in nursing homes, direct provision and patients hospitalised due to Covid-19.
