As the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic increases globally, we at Aktion Sodis have set up this donation pot at short notice. The people in Micani are particularly at risk of becoming victims of the pandemic due to their remote location. The nearest doctor is often several hours away and the journey there is hardly possible to make for diseased people. It is therefore necessary to take immediate measures to protect the villagers from the virus. Please support us in this, every donation counts!
The coronavirus is spreading worldwide and will not stop at small village structures such as Micani and its surroundings. There, however, people are particularly unprotected, as there is no sufficient medical care. Further, hygiene measures such as washing hands are not yet widely known. As a result, the virus would spread incredibly fast in the region and threatens the lives of many people.
With your support, we can strongly increase our preventive work in the forthcoming days and weeks, to protect people from the virus. Intensive washing trainings will take place in the villages and information material will be distributed in Micani and the neighbouring districts to about 20.000 inhabitants. Additionally, new washing stations will be installed in the villages. In order to achieve the greatest possible coverage, radio broadcasts for about 40.000 people are planned.
Although the measures are designed for the short term in order to achieve the greatest possible impact, they will also have long-term effects in the area of hygiene and health. Still, the ultimate goal is for us to now act quickly to limit the impact of the pandemic and protect human lives. Your donation can make this possible. No matter how much you are willing to donate, please help - every contribution counts!
