The project was established to provide emergency assistance with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and has since served to maintain and improve health status in Micani. The day-to-day burden of the pandemic has lessened, but challenges in the local health system persist alongside the aftermath of COVID-19. Our involvement in rapid emergency assistance was a premiere for Aktion Sodis, however now, we aim to refocus our activities on what we do best: long-term development cooperation projects.
Furthermore, there is a lack of solid basic knowledge about health and hygiene. Added to this is the often poor accessibility of doctors or medical facilities. Basic hygiene must be further improved to remain protected against other pathogens and to prevent them from multiplying.
With your support, the prevention work can be continued in the form of ongoing trainings in basic hygiene and sanitation practices, promotion and monitoring of sanitation infrastructure, and continuing to collaborate with the local medical staff. In this way, we are striving for a sustainable improvement in the situation on site.
The measures further serve to sustainably expand the health care system. Thus, we can prepare the local people for any coming pandemics or disease outbreaks and thereby increase their own sense of security. Your donation can make this possible. No matter how much you are willing to donate, please help - every contribution counts!
