During this women's month I am so concerned especially for women with disabilities in the North west Region and more especially in the Rural communities. Covid 19 is on the rise. The sociopolitical crisis is intensifying. Its becoming more insecure to go out as there is constant cross firing between the non state armed groups and forces of law and order. Most of these women have lost their source of livelihood especially as their disability is an additional hindrance in carrying out their activities. Back at home they can barely afford meals to cater for their families who most of the time depend on them . How then will they be able to afford Covid19 kits for prevention of this deadly pandemic which is spreading rapidly? During this women's Month I am not letting limited resources stop me from taking action. Rather I have acquired a skill in face mask production from one of volunteers at who is hearing impaired army sister. I figured out it will be easier for me to produce than to buy already prepared ones. Using part of the money I got from the World Pulse award I have acquired some material and we we producing already. We are hoping to produce about 500 face mask to reach out to 50 household. Which means 10 face mask per household. By the grace of God we are hoping to produce more in the nearest future.. We will be targeting the Bafut rural community first and hen we can move to other communities if funding permits
This initiative will at least reducing the burden of buying face mask on them and so they can save the money in doing other things. Through the distribution it will give an opportunity for awareness raising on the causes, symptoms, treatment and prevention of Covid19.
Thank you all my World Pulse sisters for making this possible through the Spirit Award. YOU ROCK!!!!!
