In the wake of the COVID-19 spread in Ghana, Gosanet Foundation in Adaklu and Agotime Ziope in the Volta region and SEND GHANA DCMC are monitoring citizens’ compliance on the preventive protocols outlined by Government and the World Health Organization (WHO).
DCMC members report that community meetings in the districts have been banned after the president’s directives. Chiefs and opinion leaders use information centers to disseminate information to community members. Funerals and religious gatherings in the various communities have been suspended until further notice. Two borders; Batume Junction and Afegame Border in the Agotime Ziope district have been closed down indefinitely.
According to the planning officer for Agotime Ziope District Assembly Mr. Jacob Nunekpeku, the assembly has donated 2 poly tanks, 50 Veronica buckets, 7,500 hand gloves, 10,000 nose masks, and 300 hand sanitizers to various public institutions in the district to reduce the spread of the virus.
Gosanet Foundation in collaboration with DCMCs partnered various community information centers including People for Health (P4H) communities to educate people to construct their own tippy taps for regular hand washing.
