Upon learning about the lack of access healthcare workers in Nigeria have had to PPE throughout the pandemic, Dr. Liza Egbogah – the Toronto-based osteopath and accessory entrepreneur whose family hails from the country – sprang into action in order to make a difference. After connecting with one of her favourite Nigerian designers, Ekwerike Chukwuma of the label Wuman, the “We Must Design a Better World” t-shirt was created. The project is particularly close to both their hearts for many reasons, including the fact that prior to entering the fashion space, Chukwuma studied medicine.

100 per cent of the proceeds from sales will go to purchasing PPE for Nigeria’s frontline workers, and the shirts are certified by WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) – even more reason to feel good about this purchase.
