Initiative Update

Community out reach with covid19 kits

Regina Afanwi Young
Posted August 27, 2020 from Cameroon

Everyone's heart desire is to see covid19 kicked out of every single community. Which means all must have adequate information and kits (facemask, sanitisers,soap and hand washing buckets) necessary for its prevention.

The 2 English speaking regions of Cameroon have been hit hard by the sociopolitical crisis, coupled with the corona pandemic. Persons with disabilities have been the most affected. Their impairment is already a limitation coupled with the two other mentioned problems. That is why I am continuously looking for opportunities to assist these persons with covid19 kits. 

On the 24th of August 2020 as I celebrated my 49th birthday I thought of doing a donation as a perfect birthday present for myself. 

I visited this little 12year's old girl who is suffering from cerebral palsy. Her father also lives with a physical impairment. This day I donated her a hand washing bucket, soap, sanitiser and face mask. You should have seen the beautiful smile on her face as she struggled to pronounce a warm thank you. Tears flowed down my eyes. I felt really fulfilled for Haven put a smile on someone's face and giving her  hope that people out there cared about her wellbeing. This donation will directly benefit this little girl and indirectly 6 other member of her household. sincere thanks to the Cameroon Baptist convention health board for this great assistance. 

I urge you to look around your community and as close as your neighborhood. You will be surprise at how many Vulnerable persons you could assist. They must not be living with disabilities. Please join me kick covid19 out of our communities. Its a combined effort.

How many people have you impacted since your last update?

Hello dear Regina:)
Your idea of gifting others in need as a way of gifting yourself is fresh and revolutionary!
What a noble heart you have.

I think of the enormous difference we'd all make in our world if everyone with a little more would adopt this idea. Then so many unnecessary items we have would be channelled to people in real need.

I smile to think of the girl's smile :)
Thank you sharing your birthday present with her, and with us here, to challenge us to keep looking for ways to do more.

Keep shining sister,
Stay sparkly :)
