COVID Education Sessions Continue to Keep Families Safe

By Alka Subramanian | Executive Director

New Format: Since July 2020, regular “Safe Park” activities were replaced by COVID education sessions since most families in the community have little knowledge about COVID spread and prevention. Two COVID education workshops are conducted and about 40 children attend every week. Masks and a small snack are provided. In addition, insecticide treated mosquito bed nets are provided to chidlren and their families to keep them safe from malaria. Pre-COVID, “Safe Park” program activities included educational games and workshops and were designed for children to learn and play in a safe environment.

Goal: Our goal is to keep families informed so that they follow all protocols (hand washing, social distancing, and wearing a mask) to stay safe from COVID. To date, more than 500 children have participated in these education sessions.

Impact of Program activities: Children and their families have better knowledge about COVID prevention and the importance of using masks and frequent handwashing. A story of a beneficiary family below highlights the effectiveness of these educational workshops.

Mercy (not her real name) attended a COVID education workshop last year. She received education on how to prevent COVID and received masks to keep her safe. In addition, her family received insecticide treated nets and she now shares the bed net with her grandmother. Mercy is not scared of falling sick with malaria anymore. Since receiving the net, no one in her family has been sick from malaria.

Thanks for keeping children and families safe from COVID.
