Working on the frontlines of this pandemic doesn't just have physical health repercussions.

Many have overlooked the huge impact it will have on the mental health of hundreds of thousands of healthcare workers across the globe - especially since so many of these frontline workers are having to stay away from their families and kids.

In fact, some have spoken out and said that we will soon be facing a PTSD crisis...

"The group that is most at risk are the front-line health care workers,’’ as well as the people who lost loved ones, said Stanford University Professor Debra Kaysen, head of the school’s International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.

Despite everything, in our hour of need...

We rely on the incredible work of the emergency services and healthcare professionals.

And when it comes to medical pandemics?

It's these people who are on the front line trying to protect us.

And more often than not...

They don't even have sufficient PPE, or at least, not enough of it to go around - i.e. proper face masks and gloves.

We can get so wrapped up in ourselves, that we forget how much we rely on these people...

And of course, the fact that they are exposed to sick people day in day out - working hours that many of us couldn't even begin to imagine.

They themselves put their own health at stake.

Not to mention the long hours and mental health repercussions that come along with this.

Our frontline workers should be the top priority when it comes to receiving the correct PPE...

But sadly, this hasn't been the case.

And as for frontline workers who wear hijabs and turbans?

Things have been even more difficult.

Wearing a face mask over a hijab or turban for hours on end isn't at all ideal...

And this can cause serious discomfort for the frontline workers having to work for hours without a break.

But, thanks to Halima Aden...

An alternative form of PPE has been created for frontline workers who wear hijabs and turbans.

Halima is a Somali-American model, activist, and UNICEF ambassador...

And she has recently teamed up with female-founded AI tech company Anywear to launch the "Banding Together Project."

This project has been designed specifically for healthcare workers...

And its products features a line of headbands made with buttons for workers who wear hijabs and turbans, in partnership with Allure.

Anywear was founded by Emily Shippee, a New York City-based journalist, and Adi-Lee Cohen, a former product and design company owner in Israel.

Speaking to Insider, Emily said: "When the pandemic first started, Halima had posted on her Instagram how she used to work in the hospital cleaning and her support and admiration of all frontline workers. The main pillar of our startup and values is inclusivity. Halima having formerly worked in a hospital and her platform and values made the collaboration a no-brainer."

Each face cover, hijab, and turban is made from organic fabrics, and they are machine-washable and reusable.

The face mask sets retail for $45 and they come with a hijab and a face covering that was designed with a built-in extender to clasp comfortably behind the head, according to the product description.

The model touched on her own experiences when designing the masks...

"As many hijab-wearing women are working at healthcare facilities, I wanted to make sure they have a comfortable option for wearing a mask while keeping their hair covered. It can also get hot running around at the pace healthcare employees are right now, so a breathable fabric was a must," Halima explained.

Halima had worked at the St. Cloud Minnesota hospital cleaning patients' rooms even after her modeling career took off...

Which is why this collaboration is so important to her.

She has picked the 7 different colors very carefully...

"I really wanted the pieces to give a feeling of tranquility and calm, so I went with soft shades that bring a feeling of peace," Halima explained.

Like many others, Halima is trying to make the best of the current situation.

She added, "Like everyone, my livelihood has been turned upside down. I just keep reminding myself [of] something that my mom always says: 'Hard times don't last, but strong people do.'"

Halima's face mask line is now available online.
