As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold of the Middle East, regional entrepreneurs have taken to social media about how the crisis will affect their businesses. Dubai-based beauty brand Huda Beauty issued a statement on Saturday saying that the Huda Beauty team has “taken serious and swift measures to ensure that we all come through this trying time together,” such as working from home and facilitating social distancing.
The brand, helmed by Iraqi-American sisters Huda and Mona Kattan, also invited customers to reach out to them on social media if they were feeling “lonely or anxious.”
“We know that this is a very difficult time for many of you and you are not alone. If you’re feeling lonely or anxious during this time, we’re always here to support and uplift you on our @HudaBeauty Instagram and blog, TikTok, Snapchat and other social media accounts. We’ll be sending positive and uplifting vibes your way always,” they added in the statement.
