Questions Arising Within Me.

Greetings to my beloved, beautiful sisters. I trust you are staying safe! 

I've been offline for some time due to phone issues but while I was off and thinking of how to go fix it like three weeks back, I kept on thinking about other issues relating to other people out there, especially the remote areas... And that is why I want to ask these questions and I hope to get answers from my sisters.

Question 1:

For some communities who do not have access to water and soap and of course will not have access to hand sanitizer, what possible way(s) can they actually practice hand washing as a precautionary measure and be able to stay safe from the novel corona virus? 

Question 2:

Let's take for an instance, a woman with her three kids, whose daily bread comes from selling vegetables at the market but because of this pandemic, can not go out to make sales. How can she possibly provide for her family?

Paraventure the market gets opened and starts to sell again, how best can she protect herself while selling? 

Question 3:

Now, for some of the students in high school who are now home doing nothing and don't have access to school materials and someone to guide them to keep learning even in this global crisis, how can such a student or students be helped? 

What are the possible solutions to help them study? 

Question 4.

For some communities and persons (both at the rural and urban centers) who still don't take the matter of this covid-19 seriously, how well can one educate them? 

These are what I have been thinking about for some time and I thought to bring it here for more clarification. 

Thank you so much for reading as I await to get responses... Keep staying safe, Dora.

Hello sister
I hope you doing fine
I will like to the question that says how can a community that doesn't yet believe that convic 19 is real .
I think that such community can be educated through pictures from others countries like Italy and America so that they can see what is happening with their own eyes.
Thanks for sharing dear
Stay safe and wise

Hi sister,
You ask the important questions and if our governments collectively and globally would take responsibility, as the reaping resources and creating trade has been built globally, so must the solutions. New wells and clean water sources for all who do not have them, government support for people not able to grow and market food until it is safe and possible to resume, online access and self learning materials for all children, and government responsibility to ensure information is available everywhere. In a world in which there are millionaires and billionaires, surely this is possible. At the moment World Pulse sisters and small underfunded non-profits are doing this work. A good start would be to fully fund them, as they are doing the work because of generous hearts.

Hi dear, Government should be responsible for its Citizens in times like this. What our Government has failed us.
NGO'S and some philanthropist and buoyant people are helping out.
Please be safe

Hello Dora,
If there are people of good will, they can reach out and help those people. I also want to say that in such remote areas, Covid 19 is far from there because they are not in touch with the busy world with cities and cars, planes and trains coming in and out. They are safe my dear. I know of remote areas in my country where Covid 19 has not reached and will never reach, God be praised.
