Help stop the devastating spread of COVID-19 from ravaging rural and remote communities in Africa
As COVID-19 ripples across the globe at an alarming rate, many countries are implementing critical measures to protect their people and help stop the spread. For countries in the developing world, COVID-19 will hit hard and fast – and most don’t even see it coming, especially where internet is slow and expensive.
You may be in isolation and feel powerless, but you can help save millions of people in Africa who are uninformed and oblivious to what is careening toward them.
there is little information on the ground in Africa on how to stay safe
and stop the spread of the virus. We need your help to get it into the
hands of every person, even those in the most remote and
isolated corners of the country.
We’ve compiled vital health information, including easy-to-understand videos – which can be shared from mobile device to mobile device, without internet access! There is no faster, more efficient way to help these people protect themselves from COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic is deadly no matter where it spreads, but its path of death and destruction will be most devastating in places like Africa due to pre-existing health issues in remote areas: Most people cook with charcoal, which compromises the lungs Many are living with HIV – their suppressed immune systems make them especially vulnerable Let’s make sure this critical information sits on every mobile device in Africa
