Need for COVID Workshops is Huge

Power of Love’s COVID education/Safe Park program provides a safe place for children to play and learn. Education on COVID, HIV and malaria prevention, PPE, a safe place for children to learn/share are provided resulting in improved physical and mental health of hundreds of children and their families.

Need for SP/COVID workshops: In resource poor neighborhoods, residents do not have access to accurate information regarding COVID, safety of the COVID vaccine, treatment for children living with HIV who contract COVID, etc. This has led to uncertainty and the spread of false information.

Our response: Since last year, our team at the request of several pastors, has been holding workshops for the benefit of their congregations. Education on the COVID vaccine, proper hygiene, and PPE are provided at these meetings. Community members are encouraged to get both shots of the COVID vaccine. In the first three months of 2022, 307 children benefitted from these workshops. In addition, 200 children received long lasting insecticide treated nets so that they can stay safe from malaria. Finally, we are partnering with community libraries so that children can access books from the library with the goal of improving their reading and writing skills.

Our plan is to continue to provide a safe environment for children to play and learn and keep communities informed about COVID, malaria, and HIV prevention. This program activities go a long way in keeping families healthy and children in school.

Thank you!
