Vale is supporting the embroidery cooperative in Moatize in province of Tete in Mozambique for production of protective masks against COVID-19. A total of 1,700 masks will be made to be distributed to the communities surrounding the Moatize coal mine as well as to direct and third-party employees of Vale. So far, over 300 units have been produced and delivered to the district government of Moatize. The masks are made from capulana and recyclable fabric from Vale's uniform shirts. The initiative to support the production of masks is part of the efforts that Vale has been taking, thus reinforcing several protective measures to tackle the pandemic.

This embroidery cooperative was founded in 2017, providing several types of services. It is a Vale’s supplier for embroidering flags, uniform shirts, gifts, and other materials that Vale uses on visit events.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Vale has proactively taken all preventive measures to avoid the spread of the disease in the country and ensure the safety of its employees and the communities surrounding its operations. Nacala Logistics delivered 15 thousand tests to the health authorities of Nampula province to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. In the coming days, Nacala Logistics will also donate to the Niassa province five thousand kits for the serum-epidemiological survey, which will help them tackle COVID-19 in the northern region of the country.
