Starfish Wellness Wagon and Masoyi Home Based Care

During the lock down, as many clients were restricted to go to the clinics, only a minimum number of patients were allowed to enter the clinics due to Covid-19 virus because they were preventing the spread.
The starfish wellness wagon managed to touch many lives of people around Masoyi community. There was a great challenge of screening the Covid-19 virus and need for medicines to those who were sick and even immunisation of children ever since crèches have closed.

NTERVENTION

• As the Starfish wellness wagon staff under Masoyi Home Based Care, we have screened Covid-19 virus.
• We were teaching them social distancing during our working sessions.
• We were using the loud hailer to call and tell them to wear their face mask and wash hands with water and soap and even when they reach us, we were sanitising them with hibitane in alcohol 70%, 1,5 meter social distancing.
• Parents also came with their children, bringing along Road to health card for administration of Vitamin A and worm stop pill for children.
• Children with septic ring worms, coughing, rash on skin and upper respiratory were also treated with medicine under supervision of their parents.
• HIV&AIDS was also tested, and awareness was also done about the wearing of condom during sexual intercourse and those who were already taking treatment were taught to take their medication properly as advised.

• The sick ones were also examined and assisted with treatment and health education.
• Follow up was done to those kids who were treated before
• Health education was also part and parcel of our daily activities, hand washing, wearing of musk and sanitizing hands.
• We are still working under Covid-19, no staff member is infected.
