COVID19 Response: Training and PPE Distribution

The Corona Virus Disease has continued; with a broad spectrum impact on the globe. The economic downturn, new social paradigms, and work ethics have followed in response to the pandemic. Countries are still working hard to contain the situation. And lots of speculation are in the air about how the post-covid world will look like.

The forecast for Africa was that the virus will do huge damage, considering the inadequate state of health care in most of the continent. Our response to this forecast was to do the bit we can to help Nigeria keep ahead of the virus. Throughout April and May, we distributed personal protective equipment to clinics, maternities, traditional birth attendants and healthcare workers in Enugu and Anambra States of Nigeria.

It wasn’t just distribution, but a detailed COVID’19 response training for the health workers involved. It was quite an insightful time for the beneficiaries and a fulfilling venture for our staff and sponsors. The project was done in three (3) phases spanning three (3) towns, six (6) clinics and two hundred and ten (210) healthcare workers and independent TBAs. We are glad to be a source of hope in these gloomy times. All thanks to you for your continued support.
