A relaunch of the fight against covid19

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.

So beautiful Regina! It is true that so many people are weary of heeding the health precautions. But we have to forge a new way of life to protect the most vulnerable. I know your actions will cause ripples far and wide. Keep going dear sister!

Dear Regina,
You are a walking, loving embodiment of the spirit of World Pulse. With everything that you do, you added (during a meeting with women with disabilities on loans) important and lifesaving information, (and soap)! to keep the community safe from covid. One woman doing the work her Government should be doing. And then thanking a World Pulse sister for the inspiration. You are walking love, dear sister.
