LA- and Berlin-based production company AKKURAT Studios is now producing non-medical face masks for purchase. The company founded by director Andreas Roth and Executive Producer Rocco Kopecny, has now dedicated itself to raising funds to help those on the frontlines of the coronavirus COVID-19 battle.
“The Coronavirus will primarily affect those who are already experiencing difficulties. These include the refugees on our external borders, the homeless, the elderly and the sick. The corona crisis may distract the world from the suffering of those in need of protection, but the violence and humanitarian catastrophe continue. That’s why it’s important to stick together, now more than ever,” says the website.
By increasing quantities of non-medical face masks for civilians, the award-winning company aims to help ensure that there are enough medical-grade N95 masks available to the healthcare and essential workers who need them most.

Buy a mask for yourself or a friend/beloved person. You can choose your purchase amount to support the cause. 100% of the proceeds go to ‘Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders,’ to prevent the corona disaster.”
Take care of each other out there!
