Kill Hunger Virus,or Corona Virus will Kill us All
The advent of COVID 19 pandemic has got the whole World unprepared with no apparent strategy to carp the spread of coronavirus. According to the Daily Nation dated 7th April 2020 page 3, Africa has nine thousand four hundred and fourteen thousand confirmed cases, four hundred and forty five, deaths and nine hundred an nine recovered cases.
In Kenya confirmed cases by 7th April, 2020 were one hundred and fifty eight, with six deaths and four recovered with the graph going upwards by day and night.
The crisis brought by the pandemic has rendered millions of Kenyans jobless and others on unpaid leave. The business sector has also been affected with hospitality industry being the most affected yet it employs the majority. The Jua kali sector including, Matatu drivers, Conductors, Touts, Boda Boda riders, hawkers and other small scale business operators are going home with way less than half their income.
There is need to encourage Kenyan Citizens to embrace the spirit of patriotism following the panic and fear overriding the need to get everyone involved. ISWIK initiative has thus provided an opportunity for Citizens in the private sector to work with those in the public sector to support the Government of Kenya to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic.
Steps taken so far in Kenya to contain the spread of Covid-19 are being implemented all over the World: However, they are not enough because the number of patients is increasing every day. In a few weeks, the number of patients in Kenya are projected to hit thousands, with more confirmed cases and imminent deaths.
Therefore, if no improvement is witnessed in social distancing behavioral patterns, provision of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and creating awareness, the crisis will balloon beyond our capability to contain.
Currently the economy is on partial lockdown and the entire educational sector crippled. Churches have been halted and most businesses have been suspended.
The government is at the forefront in leading with a stimulus plan that will help the country in managing the pandemic. It is necessary for every citizen to step up and join the government by adhering to the basic instructions and procedures.
ISWIK initiative covers the entire 47 Counties in Kenya beginning with; Nairobi Metropolitan including Kiambaa, Ruiru, Thika, Matungulu, Mavoko, Kajiado, Ngong, Nairobi area, Kwale Kilifi and Mombasa. The areas are mapped out with different activities in specific areas within the next one month.
Our main operation will be on a door-to-door campaign and marketing through print and audio media platforms. Activities will include fumigation, distribution of food hamper, masks, sanitizers, gloves and observing general protective measures.
We also continue engaging the legislative arm of government through lobbying to meet our objectives through our ISWIK team and incorporating different multi-sectors and a dedicated volunteers from other partners fighting the same cause.
We shall therefore remain open to allow any other individual or organization to join us along the way until the situation goes back to normalcy.
