So here’s how AfriKids has responded:
“First, we set up an AfriKids COVID-19 response team. The team provided communities with public health education, on the cases and effects of COVID-19, proper handwashing and child protection. We provided marginalised families with some PPE, food packs, soap and hand sanitizers to over 1 million individuals from 300 households. We have also trained parents to provide Cerebral Palsytherapyfor their children at home due to limited number of CP clinics. Further, our family livelihood programme revised its mode of operations – reducing interest rates, providing training in business skills for women.”
With your help, we have made huge strides already but we have a long way to go.
“If AfriKids is able to continue with its ground-breaking interventions, which I trust we will do courtesy of your kind support,youcan be assured that, the very marginalised persons from northern Ghana will be able to build resilience against the impact of COVID-19.”
