COVID-19: Africa

The International Community faces a centennial challenge in the global dispersion of the novel Coronavirus, called COVID-19. This new virus first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China and has claimed 7426 deaths lives globally. In order to stop this pandemic, citizens, communities, organizations and nations alike must contribute to the universal effort. Nascent Solutions joins the global human community, national centers for disease control and the World Health Organization (WHO) in  creating awareness about the COVID-19 virus and its spread. WHO released the following the best practices to help individuals control and mitigate the rapid spread of coronavirus transmission to save lives.

Nascent Solutions has 15 years of experience dealing with disease vector mitigation through water, sanitation, hygiene and behavior change communication. We have an extensive record of working with local communities, traditional and national institutions of governance to sensitize communities about the importance of sanitation, specifically handwashing. We deploy innovative ideas to minimize incidental transmission of pathogens, such as implementing foot pedal triggers in our handwashing stations to eliminate the transmission of vectors through communal touching of the faucet in school environments.

To address the heightened risk posed by COVID-19. We will re-prioritize sensitization efforts on the importance of hand-washing as well as all other best-practices as advised by the WHO to curtail communal transmission of the virus across all our programs.

Our field teams are feeling overwhelmed by enormous need for soap and hand washing stations in schools and communities we serve.  Please join our efforts to combat COVID-19 by donating below.

1

Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

 

2

Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

 

3

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Touching door handles, or other objects of common use and then touching the face increases the risk of contraction.

 

4

Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
