In Somaliland, Oxfam with partner Shaqodoon set up a call centre to enable information about Coronavirus to be given out and passed to the Ministry of Health. Families in Somalia now face the threat of COVID-19 on top of their many challenges like ongoing instability, droughts, locusts and more. Oxfam and partners are there. One key piece is providing people with information and support to stay healthy.
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.
