In a statement given to Delight Rwanda staff on fighting against COVID-19, Gihana Samson the Executive Director requested all staff to work hand in hand to slow down the pandemic crisis which is not just a health problem. It is a worldwide pandemonium that is expected to impact the socio-economic and cultural dimensions of the people.
Our support is mandatory as an organization aiming to the behavior change communication practice and the support of the sustainable project. “Rwanda is undergoing a massive change, and the poorest and the most vulnerable communities will be deeply affected” Gihana Samson the Executive Director, says.
Behavior Change Communication department was given a special tasks to lead the entire staff to slow down the spread of pandemic by producing awareness campaign tips such as designed messages and animated videos and other means of communication.
On a positive note, however, with the lockdown, the country’s borders closed, there is less risk for imported cases, which is also a positive in making sure that the possibility of achieving cases can materialize.
Looking at the conditions for defeating the pandemic, Gihana Samson warns that we cannot simply say the curve is flattened by just looking at how it stands now.
Based on this, Delight Rwanda has developed an Emergency Response Plan to support the poorest and the most vulnerable communities who are deeply affected
