There are currently 686 positive cases of the Coronavirus in Liberia, with over 1000 tracing contacts, according to the National Public Health Institute. The worst-case scenario is that Liberia is among the first five most impoverished nations in the world. As a result, it is suffering from weak health infrastructure for treating common sicknesses, at least to talk about Coronavirus. The local community people have posed fear, misinformation, and disbelieve in the existence of COVID 19.
CFP will provide effective and efficient communication about the existence of the virus. CFP will also provide materials on the prevention of COVID 19, especially among the elders, youths, women, men, and children in hard to reach rural communities in Liberia. The action will help break the barriers of misconceptions among local people about the existence of the virus and prevention methods. This project will also give the local population the chance and confidence to remain resilient.
The project will provide education and awareness-raising on Coronavirus with 1000 local populations in rural communities in Montserrado County, Liberia. The project will also enhance the knowledge of 1000 local community dwellers (children, physically challenged, youths, women, and men) on Coronavirus prevention. And, the project will provide basic Coronavirus prevention materials at community and household level to 1000 children, youth, men, women, and physically challenged.
