Challenge

The COVID-19 or Coronavirus crisis has made a tremendous cross-sectoral impact across most of the countries around the world. The entire social, economic, and cultural structure is gradually transforming into an unexpected reality. Poor communities in Sierra Leone have become more vulnerable to the basic issues of livelihood, hunger, housing, and shelter. There are currently over 1,900 confirmed cases with 69 deaths in the country and the numbers keep rising in an alarming fashion.

Solution

Even though we will not be involved in clinically addressing the Coronavirus problem, Advocacy Initiative for Development (AID) Sierra Leone will embark on the following across the country to help stop the spread of COVID-19: 1. Increase community awareness on the prevention and spread of the COVID-19 diseases; 2. Reduce panicking and disinformation caused by the spread of COVID-19 disease and 3. Ensuring the supply of basic resources such as masks, food and shelter to the poorest and the needy

Long-Term Impact

The results and the indicators we expect from the above intervention: - A large number of people will adopt sound sanitation, social distancing, and other safety precautions against the COVID-19 pandemic. - There will be a limited spread of disinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic. - A large number of homeless and poor people will have access to food and shelter.
