Zambia is among the many Countries that have been affected by the Corona Virus which has claimed lives in many Countries around world and Solwezi District has not been spared from the pandemic. Most of the poor People especially vulnerable women in Zambia live on less than a dollar per day and COVID-19 has just worsened the situation. Women are the most affected people in the communities. In Solwezi, all the families have been confined in their homes spending the little income raised from their small business. Therefore, COVID-19 has left families in Solwezi without food, soap and other essential basic needs such as medical bills and many others, which are cardinal for human survival. The loss of business and employment opportunities due to COVID-19 has caused many vulnerable women to be involved in prostitution and other illicit activities to enable them earn a living which compromises their human dignity.
In order to respond to the economic shocks that has proposionately affected women, Charity Centre for Children and Youth Development created Coronovirus Relief Fund to support vulnerable women in Solwezi. The organization has disbursed ZMW 211,500 about $9,346 targeting 193 women in Solwezi District between April and June 2021. The project is helping women set up a small business in local markets of Solwezi.
