Bela Masks, Made in Chapala, Mexico
During the current Coronavirus pandemic, it’s important that everyone wear a mask in public places to prevent the spread of the virus as much as humanly possible. We are pleased to begin offering a high-quality fabric mask available to residents of Chapala, Jalisco and neighboring communities.

The Bela Mask
Our Masks are made from 4 layers of fabric. The outer layer and inner layer are cotton. The two inner layers are non-woven filtration layers. (No mask can completely stop all virus particles, but the added filtration layers help a lot!)
All masks are secured with elastic or cotton straps (depending on availability of materials) and have a wire nose-piece that can be shaped to your face for a better fit.
Colors and outer layer designs change daily, so please be open to whatever we have available at time of ordering.
Buy One, Give One for $200 pesos
When you purchase a mask for $200 pesos, we will donate a second mask to a caregiver, medical worker, or other local service provider in need.
MASK ORDER FORM
As masks are available, we will notify people on our wait list according to the date of your reservation. As your name comes to the top of the list, you will be notified about the next available distribution time and location.
Sorry, no shipping available. You MUST be able to pick up your mask in the Chapala area at the designated meeting place.
The Bela Masks Team
Bela Masks are produced by Becca and Alan Pohl of Alivio International, Shelly Stokes, and seamstresses Nico and Sylvia from Agua Caliente, a village on Lake Chapala. The team is also supported by a number of volunteers.
