The WUZDA Ghana Approach
Our special focus on the COVID – 19 Pandemic has led to two key programs ran by WUZDA Ghana and our partners to help communities adjust to living with the virus.
COVID – 19 Emergency Response Project
With funding from our partners; Mundo Cooperante and Bread for the World, we have supported a total of 450 individuals, institutions and agencies with both information and basic PPE, helping communities to observe the COVID – 19 safety protocols.
WUZDA Ghana supported 420 community members in seven communities across four MMDAs in the Northern Region of Ghana, in the forms of provision of information on COVID – 19, as well as basic PPE such as face masks, hand sanitizers, liquid soap and ‘Veronica” hand washing facilities.
We have also donated hand washing facilities and gallons of liquid soap to radio stations and other partner NGOs to support their observance of the safety protocols.
Some of the radio stations that received the donation of the hand washing facilities and are making good use of them include Radio Justice, Diamond FM, Bishara Radio, Might FM, Radio Tamale, Radio Tawasul and others.
The other partners that have received the hand washing facilities are Amasachina Self – Help Initiative, Yakoro Youth Movement, as well as some individual homes and artisan centers and automobile garages within Tamale.
A total of one hundred teenage girls of the Prisons School Complex benefited directly from the COVID – 19 Emergency Response Project, with the provision of face masks, hand sanitizers and liquid soap in our bid to supporting the vulnerable groups in the communities to observe the COVID – 19 safety protocols.
Through the project, we found a crucial need of the Tamale West Hospital, of an additional space for persons attending the Out Patient Department to allow for proper observation of the social distancing protocol at the hospital.
Due to the existence of this problem, WUZDA Ghana donated a two – room canopy, plastic chairs, hand washing facilities with gallons of liquid soap and surgical gloves to the hospital to enable it better manage the congestion and suspected cases of COVID – 19.
Our partnerships with the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE), the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly and some radio stations in Tamale, Ghana, contributed to the successful implementation of the project and the results that have come thereafter.
The ‘PRoBESPCoD’ Project – Difaem
The results from our various emergency COVID – 19 interventions led to our signing an agreement with Difaem in Germany, for the implementation of an eighteen – month COVID – 19 intervention Program to further support communities and individuals to continue to observe the safety protocols.
