ADPP Mozambique was recently at the forefront of a campaign to prevent COVID-19, a disease that plagues the country and the world, in the district of Nhamatanda, in an initiative in partnership with World Jewish Relief. Through this ADPP Emergency Response initiative, 474 families in the Nhamatanda district of Lamego benefited from hygiene kits, consisting of buckets with tap, soap and chlorine.
The project also distributed masks for the protection of the mouth and nose and promoted an awareness campaign on the correct use of the material offered, the correct and frequent washing of hands and the importance of observing social distance.
According to Abdulai Chabane, coordinator of ADPP’s emergency project, this initiative is essentially aimed at ensuring that these communities are minimally warned against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The project disseminated information about COVID-19 among the most vulnerable households in Nhamatanda, local market vendors and those embarking on public transport. In this way, the people concerned will prevent themselves as well as others. This will happen when people practice the recommended hand washing techniques, wear masks in public and observe social distancing”. -said Abdulai Chabane
