Summary

COVID-19 is disrupting the lives and livelihood of lives in Sierra Leone. In response, we are targetting key areas. These include cleanliness education/sensitization, radios so kids can listen to educational broadcasts, provision of masks, soap, food items to alleviate hunger/crisis impact, and pregnancy prevention for teenage girls. This response is based on the successes and the lessons that we learned during our involvement in the Ebola Epidemic. We stand together. Together we will win.

Challenge

The fallout and side-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have devastated the lives of vulnerable families in Sierra Leone. Families are struggling now more than ever to put food on the table. Children are at risk of dropping out of school. Families are unable to afford cloth masks to help keep themselves safe from getting sick with the Coronavirus. Kids are unable to listen to educational radio broadcasts because they do not have radios or batteries.

Solution

Our response targets key areas of need such as educational sensitization (to ensure people know the importance of handwashing / safe distancing etc). We are also providing soap to help ensure that they wash their hands regularly. Cloth masks distribution to vulnerable populations and people who are not able to afford masks are helping to stop the spread of COVID-19. The provision of radios is ensuring that kids are able to benefit from educational broadcasts.

Long-Term Impact

Lives will be saved from sickness and death from the coronavirus. Our sensitization and provision of soap, masks, etc is ensuring that beneficiaries are safe and empowered to take responsibility for their health and future success. Our radio sensitization broadcasts are helping to alert young ladies and prevent pregnancy.
