Recent World Health Organization reports warn that COVID-19 is spreading at an alarming rate in rural areas of Africa and urges help as a need to strengthen the continent’s fragile health system. As we emphasize on keeping a low interacting levels with the public while intensifying our hygiene through the frequent washing of our hands as preliminary measures to curb the spread of the covid-19 pandemic, it should be taken into consideration the fact that these measures have left a serious stress mark on children’s psychology especially those from 13 and below.
Instead of playing outside, going to school, doing sports and meeting friends, they are now locked up with their parents all day, often in very confined spaces. Moreover, they are worried about school, their friends as well as themselves, because the present restriction conditions are very unusual.
Hope for A Better Future and partners have taken the initiative to educate and ensure that children and adolescents below the ages of 13, understand why their normal lives have been so immensely restricted. Also, we thrive to give children a sense of self-consciousness on the stakes of the covid19 pandemic, its severity and also what they can do to protect themselves, their family and friends from Corona Virus Pandemic.
Although children and adolescents rarely fall seriously ill with COVID-19, they are nevertheless extremely affected by the pandemic and from the nature of their playing and interaction habits, if immense caution is not taken, they could easily facilitate the spread of this pandemic, COVID-19
