The members of the Association for the Promotion of Altranstädt Castle (Förderverein Schloß Altranstädt e.V.) in Germany, a founding member of ENPP, distributed more than 200 community masks produced by their own means to the local population.

The masks were fully sewn by the ladies who are members of the Association and all of them were identified with the Association’s name and logo.

The Association for the Promotion of Altranstädt Castle is a non-profit association founded with the aim of restoring this castle located in the Municipality of Markransträdt (Leipzig) and in which the so-called “Peace of Altranstädt” was signed on 24 September 1706  which reintroduced religious freedom in the Saxony region after the Counter-Reformation.

The distribution of masks is a small gesture of solidarity, but in this pandemic situation COVID-19 takes on particular significance.
