Standing With Indigenous Baka Pygmies To Stop COVID-19
With diverted funds from our ongoing project with World Connect, Bridgers Association Cameroon carried out COVID-19 sensitization in two Baka Bantou pygmy villages (Kwoamb and Missoume) in the East Region of Cameroon on Thursday June 4, 2020
This campaign which was the first of its kind in these communities according to the Pigmies saw the provision of hand wishing kits and proper hand washing training, the distribution of face masks and hand sanitizers.
According to the beneficiaries, this is a welcome initiative that empowers and gives hope for a safe stay in their community.
Fighting COVID-19 in Schools
June 1, 2020, our team was out on a Sensitization campaign against COVID-19 in Ayungha Bilingual Comprehensive High School Yaounde Cameroon.
With support from Becker/Cordes Stiftung Germany, we carried out educative talks on COVID-19 with special focus on the barrier measures and donated hygiene and sanitation kits to the school administration as well hand sanitizers to the students.
We drilled both teachers and students through practical demonstration on proper techniques of hand washing with soap.
When grassroots women get involved and speak out about what their problems are, the solutions are bound to come out without stress. Bridgers gets them on board, we let them prioritize their needs and the challenges faced. This is need based assessment!
