Let us be inclusive in the Prevention of Corona Virus

 

Hello dear friends. I trust God you are safe and more especially healthy. If you are Negative from the Corona Virus, my wish is you stay that way. If you are positive, my greatest wish is that you should be one of those who recover from the virus. My greatest concern is on the fact that our beloved children with Down Syndrome equally need to stay safe like anyone of us. Reason why we take on the campaign operation go inclusive with every sensitization to prevent the virus.  At Down Syndrome Association Cameroon (Aidrikings Foundation) , we try every means possible to teach our self-advocates (Persons with Down Syndrome) what to do especially the regular hand washing strategy.

We call on everyone to have in mind that persons with disabilities are always at double risk of whatever thing we face and somehow always need our help along the way.

Together we can prevent and fight the common enemy.

My top priority as of now is that the persons with Down Syndrome we advocate for should stay safe and we cannot do it on our own. Reasons we call for an inclusive sensitization to include everyone because if A is safe and B is not safe, automatically means A is not safe

Let us be safe

Persons with disabilities is certainly one of the communities whose interests we must keep at the forefront. Join me in the Novel Corona GloCal FEDs COVID Challenge to bring such issues on the front burner. Stay safe and Healthy. Love and Light!

Dear Antonia,
You are right in saying that the corona virus response should consider the different needs of persons with disabilities so that they will be safe and everyone will be safe. Let us all stay safe while the cure to this virus is not yet available. Hope you and those with disabilities can stay home to protect yourself against virus.
We just keep on praying.
Hugggs,
Paulina
