Protect Children and Families Affected by COVID-19
Preventing the spread of COVID-19 requires strong and urgent action to protect the most vulnerable.
Help Stop the Spread
Handwashing with soap is one of the cheapest, most effective actions you can take to protect yourself and others against the infection and spread of the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19.
Yet for many, even this most basic step is out of reach. The situation is critical for children living in the 14 impoverished communities where Village Impact-supported schools operate.
While Africa has so far been spared the worst of the coronavirus, the World Health Organization estimates that the continent could see 10 million cases of COVID-19 within the next six months.
We need to act now by getting people soap and health information on how to protect themselves and their families, to prevent the spread of the virus before it’s too late.
Your donation today will help supply essential resources to where they are needed most. Together we will:
- Distribute a 3-month supply of liquid soap to over 20,000 children, women and men in the 14 communities where Village Impact operates
- Provide coronavirus and hygiene education on handwashing, respiratory hygiene and isolation
- Support school communities in ongoing hygiene and sanitation education for children; and
- Provide psychosocial support for students when they return to reduce their pandemic-related stress and anxiety.
