To support our member organizations that have been continuing to provide essential services during this pandemic, PELUM Swaziland took the initiative to distribute hand sanitizers and face masks. This was done in an effort to ensure that the staff members that are in the offices have a regular supply of hand sanitizers to help curb the spread of Covid-19.
The much needed reusable face masks for the officers that are still carrying out activities in public or having to board public transport when going to and from work. This is directly in support of the government’s decision that all people should wear face masks in public except for children under the age of 2 in order to curb the transmission of the Covid-19 virus from person to person.
In a bid to raise public awareness on the disease and prevention measures that the public can take, posters were distributed to selected member organizations for further distribution to the public.
It also included agroecological activities that can be done during lockdown as well as natural foods and remedies to boost the immune system and alleviate cold and flu symptoms.
The awareness posters were distributed in Lobamba, Hhukwini, Somntongo, Matsanjeni South, Timphisini, Ntfonjeni, Nkilongo, Lubulini, Mkhuzweni, Lamgabhi, Mhwalala and Msunduza.
