Avaaz funds major hygiene and food distribution for COVID-19 affected families

With funding from Avaaz, SFHC did a major distribution of food and hygiene supplies this August. These supplies are critical for families affected by the pandemic. According to local request, we delivered…

– 25, 000 cloth face masks
– 600 cartons of soap
– 500 basins, 500 buckets with taps and 40 water drums for villages without immediate water access, in order to create hand washing stations

In agricultural support, we delivered:
– 225 kgs of orange maize seed
– 660 packets of seeds for mustard, onion, rapee, tomatoes, cabbage and Chinese cabbage
– 92, 000 kgs of maize cobs (1840 x 50kgs)

During distribution, we gave trainings on mask use and hygiene practices to stop the spread of COVID-19. Thank you to Avaaz for making this possible so we can work to keep our communities healthy! If you would like to donate to help us continue our work through the pandemic, you can do so here.
