M-19 Initiative (Makers Vs COVID19) Open Source Project - Maker’s Asylum | Maker’s Asylum

Makerspaces have traditionally been innovation hubs at the time of crisis for communities across the world. The reason - quick access to tools and equipment in order to prototype solutions “rapidly”. Maker’s Asylum is committed to the cause of contributing meaningfully to the #COVID19 pandemic! This page is dedicated to all our initiative to fight against coronavirus and in turn really hoping that the world goes back to normal soon. #makersgonnamake
