Support us, to conserve this world
We had started this project in August 2020 to help the people of Malawi cope with the Corona pandemic. Due to the massive Corona outbreak in early 2021, we have extended the project, which was originally planned for six months, until March 2021.
The key objectives of this project were:
● To provide fundamental information on Covid 19, the chains of infection and appropriate protective measures.
The project thus complements the education strategy of the local authorities (often not trusted) by specifically addressing civil society through radio broadcasts and by involving the "Traditional Authorities" (Group Village Heads, Village Heads), and the Church Leaders, who have a high level of acceptance and represent a strong multiplication factor.
Making masks is difficult for the local people as only tailors have sewing machines. However, the material for the masks is inexpensive, as the existing traditional cotton fabrics can be used. So it is quite common to hire tailors to make masks from their own fabrics: a side effect is a strengthening of the local master craftsmen.
Our local partner was the Pamoza project team with Maggie Mkandawire and Radio Dinosaur

From end of August 2020 until March 2021, weekly radio programmes with daily repeats have been broadcast on both Radio Dinosaur FM 91.0 and Radio Tuntufy, produced, presented and hosted by our project staff Bridget Mwale and Gome Mhango. The response to these broadcasts has been excellent, which is particularly evident from requests on social media.
