AMNet continues to support Gov’t in Covid-19 fight
The Advocacy Movement Network (AMNet) has with support from Amnesty International through the Department for International Development (DFID) distributed forty (40) Veronica buckets and other sanitary items to four communities in three chiefdoms in the Kambia District.
The essence of the donation is to help protect these communities from contracting the COVID-19 virus, which has claimed the lives of over sixty (60) Sierra Leoneans.
The beneficiary communities include Rotinfunk in Dixing Chiefdom, Kalangba in the Magbema Chiefdom and Kawula and Kirma-Banah both in the Masungbala Chiefdom.
Also, Sunday Foundation Secondary School for Girls in Kambia Town, Magbema Chiefdom and Community Junior Secondary School in Kawula Town, Masungbala Chiefdom and the Family Support Unit (FSU) of the Sierra Leone in Kambia benefited from the support.
The distribution exercise was followed by a sensitization campaign on COVID-19 national health regulations and guidelines put out by the Ministry of Health Sanitation. Key points stressed during the sensitization include regular and frequent washing of hands, proper use of face masks in all public places and maintaining social and physical distancing.
Residents in the various communities, especially key stakeholders, thanked AMNet and its donors for their continued and timely support, especially during this health crisis in the country.
They also pledged to adhere, abide and comply with the COVID-19 regulations as outlined by the Government of Sierra Leone through the Health ministry.
