In our understanding of the COVID 19 pandemic impact to women, girls and other most vulnerable groups, ActionAid Ethiopia has joined the consorted efforts of all actors in the nation. We extended our support to vulnerable people by supplying different sanitary products that include sanitizer, liquid soap, and hand wash containers with taps, water tankers, face masks, bed-sheets and mattresses with a total worth of about One million Birr that is around 30,000 USD.
Our Local Right Programmes (LRPs) were pioneers in their respective communities in giving swift response to the pandemic.
In collaboration with local government structures and the women socio-economic groups that are working with ActonAid Ethiopia, the LRPs implemented different methods to raise the awareness of their communities on the prevention of corona virus. In Decha-Semen Bench LRP, for example, informative brochures were produced and distributed to the public in addition to posting big billboards at different public areas in their woreda/district.
