Provision Through Tough Times…

August 10, 2020

Whilst INA works in eight countries across Asia and Africa, the response to COVID-19 has been pretty universal. No matter the level of income or country of residence, ways of managing and mitigating the virus have been the same. That’s why all of our projects have been offering support to more than 42,200 vulnerable individuals. Below, we’ve summarised three key responses that YOUR donations have helped make possible.  

Training:

Training communities in preventing the spread of COVID-19 has been a top priority. We have offered training in handwashing, social distancing, mask usage, preventative measures, quarantine, understanding the symptoms of COVID-19, as well as overseeing the hygiene practices of children.

We have informed communities on updates from governments via radio, phone or appropriate check-ins. For some, we have also been tracking and assisting pregnant women, including arranging safe travel to health facilities for delivery.

Supplies:

A plethora of supplies have been distributed by our partners. For families, we distributed masks, soap, food packages and other emergency hygiene equipment. Hand sanitiser and PPE were also given to hospitals.

Supporting incomes:

COVID is affecting economies worldwide, so we’re trying new methods of income generation, alongside some Business as Usual approaches. Some have been encouraged to continue their livelihoods (like farming or animal raising) so they have the opportunity to earn some income. For women who can sew, we have provided material to produce face masks for which they can sell for an income.
