Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike any other disaster that we have encountered before. There are a number of challenges. However, the challenge we face as a country is when the disease enters communities where there are large numbers of immunocompromised individuals with pre-existing conditions of TB, HIV, AIDS, cancer, malnutrition, diabetes, etc. Infection in this instance could pose a serious threat to the patient and our overburdened health facilities.

Solution

Several areas have been identified as being practical areas where Gift of the Givers can add value. These are: 1. Reduce Risk of Spread and Burden on State Hospitals and Resources (Provision of Medical Supplies, Availability of Medical Equipment, Pre-triage, Reduce the cost of Screening for Private Patients) 2. Access to Water (bottled water, boreholes & water tankers) 3. Access to Basic Supplies and Provision of Food 4. Education and Awareness

Long-Term Impact

The Gift of the Givers Foundation is the largest disaster response non-governmental organisation of African origin on the African continent. The essence of our presence is to bring hope and restore dignity to the most vulnerable
