Challenge

We have set up this emergency response fundraiser to provide the basic information and supplies communities in northern Kenya need to protect themselves from COVID19. Currently, there is lack of correct information, influenced by high illiteracy levels, which has led to a lot of panic and fear. Without the right information and materials to prevent COVID 19, its risk of spreading rapidly is high. We aim at reducing the risk of spreading the virus by disseminating the correct government approved

Solution

CHAT knows that reaching communities in a door to door approach is the only effective way to educate and ensure behavior change for community level diseases. We aim to equip our Community Own Resource Persons (CORPs) with materials to go door to door sensitizing community members on how to keep safe and prevent themselves from falling victim to the disease.We intend to procure thermometers, soap, water containers, PPE materials and pamphlets to help curb the spread and create awareness on COVID

Long-Term Impact

The COVID 19 disease will be slowed down and finally be stopped from spreading once everyone follows the guidelines.
