Resume:

EWB DK in partnership with WHI -SL propose to implement community based social interventions to decrease impact of the COVID19 and to prevent further spread of COVID-19 in particular vulnerable populations in slum areas in the capital Freetown through improved hygiene and access to safe community water supply combined with community awareness on preventive measures. The intervention is aligned with the GHRP (updated May) and it will focus on strategic objective 1 Contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and decrease morbidity and mortality and strategic objective 2 Decrease the deterioration of human assets and rights, social cohesion, food security and livelihoods “ hence the intervention is a combination of DERF modalities early action and lifesaving interventions. We will support the local health service through improved hygiene at health facilities, secure medical service and referral and awareness raising on COVID19 as preventive measures. The intervention will also provide food distribution and safe WASH access to vulnerable people in the targeted communities – classification of vulnerable people is also aligned with the GHRP.
