Targeting to reach 10,000 people, the Covid-19 response activities will be carried out from 8th May to 7th August, 2020.

According to the Project’s Coordinator Jimmy Kayange, he said this is one of the collective efforts in fight against the spread of the coronavirus and reaching out to people in rural areas with correct information on Covid-19, how it is spread and how to avoid reduce its further spread.
“We are going to work with teachers who have graduated from DAPP Teachers Training Colleges and are working in the aforementioned districts to mobilize communities to avoid contracting the virus. These are teachers who are trained to become agents of social change and to work with people in the rural communities,” he added.
A total of 300 handwashing buckets 1,020 tablets of soap and information flyers and posters valued MWK3,675,000 have been distributed.
Expressing his gratitude after receiving the hygiene materials at his maize meal in Kumitete village, Traditional Authority Mpama in Chiradzulu, Mr Walapa said he is thankful for the donation which will enhance the sanitation at the maize mill.
“I have close to 100 customers coming here on a daily basis and I believe apart from washing their hands, they will also be inspired to practice this hygiene in their homes, and I will make sure that this facility is being utilized and the soap is available at all times,” he said.
The target is to reach over 1000 people directly with reading materials and while promoting the handwashing practice with the facilities which will be placed in strategic points like market entrances, maize mills, bicycle taxis ranks and hair saloons among others.
