Recovering from a Flood

Helwan Village, Egypt

 

This past month, although we struggled with the COVID-19 crisis in Egypt, we still managed to give several awareness lessons about how to protect from the virus. This was through face-to-face meetings at homes as well as through phone calls to some people.

Supporting Families During the Crisis

Upper Egypt Village Cluster, Egypt

 

We are continuing to provide some grocery bags to those who have lost their jobs. Last week we learnt from the committee in Taha Village about a widow whose daughter is suffering from cancer, yet who did not visit the hospital due to the coronavirus.
 

It's a very bad and emotional time for the family. We visited the woman and provided food, and we coordinated with a doctor to provide necessary aid and medical assistance.

Hand Washing for Safe Hygiene

Koubah Bingo, Burkina Faso

 

In April, our Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers, Fatima and Mainasara, took some time out to teach on COVID-19 prevention tips. Even though there is a ban on large public gatherings, Mainasara and Fatima were able to reach a few people and emphasise hand washing as well as promoting the use of face masks.

 

Thank you!

Empowerment Centre Grateful to Donor

Isiolo Empowerment Centre, Kenya

 

Our GHNI Empowerment Centre is where many young women are equipped with life skills to help themselves. This involves social, economic, and psychosocial support due to the complex background each and every one of them is coming from. They all have their different and unique stories. The Centre has been a place where all get to share their situations and also encourage each other as they get to know one another better.

CHVs Spread Word about Virus

Attir Village, Kenya

 

It has been long hours for Community Health Volunteers (CHVS) in Attir Village as they work day after day in educating villagers about health issues in the community. Here in Attir Village, people don’t know much about cleanliness; they only know how to care after their own animals. When it comes to body cleanliness, house cleanliness, and compound cleanness, this seems like new information to them.
