In the Central-Nord region of Burkina Faso, which shelters nearly 400,000 displaced people; a little less than half of all the displaced people in the country, Oxfam and its local partner ATAD (Alliance Technique d’Assistance au Développement) are helping thousands of Burkinabé to fight the coronavirus.
We’re deeply concerned about how coronavirus will affect people living through conflict, disaster and poverty, people who are often already struggling without vital basics like water, food and sanitation.
In many countries worldwide, this pandemic is a crisis on top of crisis.
Oxfam’s humanitarian staff and partners are working hard to help stop the spread. We’re providing vital support like handwashing facilities, clean water, toilets and soap in the most vulnerable communities.
Work like this has helped contain deadly disease outbreaks such as Ebola and cholera – and it will protect people against this virus.
