■寄贈物『阿波藍染の洗えるマスク』について (About Gift "Washable Awa Aizome Mask")

阿波藍染の洗えるマスクは徳島県の伝統工芸品であり、綿織物の製造を営まれている長尾織布様がご製作されました。長尾織布様は明治30年に創業し、「阿波しじら織」を中心に綿織物の製造を営んできました。藍染めの青い色は、「JAPAN BLUE」として世界に知られるほど深く鮮やかな日本を代表する色です。徳島は、この藍染めの元となる藍染料づくりの本場として、現在もその伝統が引き継がれ、徳島でつくられた蒅を阿波藍と呼びます。

藍には抗菌作用、防虫、防腐、防臭、保温、保湿、紫外線遮蔽など、さまざなまな効用があります。 貧困に苦しむ方々と彼らを支えるボランティアスタッフの皆様がマスクを着用して快適な生活を送っていただければ幸いです。

The Washable Awa Aizome Masks are produced by Nagao Orifu, a fabrics manufacturer that has been in operation since 1898 and based in Japan’s Tokushima Prefecture. Japanese Aizome (indigo dyeing) is characterized by a deep blue color that is also called the “Mystical Japan Blue” because of its beautiful hue and is highly appreciated in foreign countries as well. It has been treasured by Japanese people since ancient times, and it is now used for modern items such as jeans or sweaters.

Natural Indigo plant dyes cotton well and is resistant to sunlight and washing with water. The more it is washed, the deeper and calmer the texture gets. The aroma that increases with weathering is said to have an insect-repellent effect and the Indigo plant used in making the dye contains medicinal compounds that protect the skin. The volunteers and needy families at Breadline Group will find the masks extremely comfortable and useful amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

■寄贈先について (About Donee)

Breadline Group は、シンガポールにて1975年に貧困に苦しむ家庭へのサポートのため、ボランティア団体として設立されました。

現在では、医療従事者より紹介を受けた200世帯以上を支えています。あまり知られていませんが、高齢者や身体障害者でありながらも、扶養家族を抱える方々がシンガポールには多くいらっしゃいます。毎月Breadline Groupのボランティアが、貧困家庭を訪問し、体調を聞いたりシンガポール公的扶助に加えて食べ物や金銭などの寄付をしています。

The Breadline Group was formed in 1975 by a group of volunteers because they shared a concern for the welfare of the old and needy in Singapore and wanted to channel their efforts towards helping them.

With their Family Adoption Schemes, The Breadline Group has “adopted” more than 200 families, most of whom were recommended by medical social workers.

Many are old and physically handicapped and have dependents to support. Every month, Breadline Group’s volunteers visit each “adopted” family, asking about their well-being, providing food provisions and/or cash to supplement public assistance schemes.
