After reading sis Jomarie's post yesterday https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/jomariebearth/posts/98459#I just couldn't begins to imagine how negligent everyone out here in Cameroon have been about covid19. I thought to myself that I definitely had to start taking action against it right away Right after our Village savings (VSL) and loan meeting for women with disabilities, I did a presentation on covid19 (causes, mode of transmission, common symptoms and prevention) Although this knowledge was not new to them but it sounded strange that I was doing a presentation on covid19 . That is how bad the situation is out here. After the presentation I shared out tablet soap for everyone to take back home. It might look small but it makes me happy that I am taking action against this deadly issue that people are just so passive about. To me it is my widow's mite and it comes from my heart with so much love for a purpose. Thanks sis Jomarie for waking me/ us up about how important this issue is through your post. Am so happy that this message touched me deep in my heart and I was able to take immediate action.
