Rahhal Rahhal works for Oxfam in Bethlehem. Here he explains the situation caused by the Coronavirus and the work Oxfam and partners are doing to help people in need. Oxfam and its local partner the Rural Women Development society, distributed around 350 hygiene packages to local CBOs and families who can’t afford such materials.
We’re deeply concerned about how coronavirus will affect people living through conflict, disaster and poverty.
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.
