Schools remain closed and children remain home and are coping by spending time with their family, playing indoor games and reading. World Vision has also been providing educational materials such as colour pencils and drawing books.
Additionally, because of the lockdown, families are also suffering because of the household lack of income flow. In efforts to mitigate this, World Vision has identified 150 households to provide assistance to in the form of hygiene kits, handwashing devices, unconditional cash* and learning materials. The team has previously reached 402 households during the first phase of this assistance programme.
The team is also continuing to spread information and carry out interventions focused on safety and prevention to minimise the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
*Unconditional cash is given to families in order for them to purchase items that meet their most immediate needs including nutritious food, medicine, soap and other essentials for the family. World Vision keeps track of families that receive unconditional cash as these families are registered in the Child Sponsorship programme.
