CERATH Embarks on a COVID-19 Sensitization Exercise & Relief Donation to Fishing Communities.
The Power to the Fishers project funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by CERATH Development Organization (CDO) carried out COVID-19 sensitization exercises in five coastal districts- Awutu Senya, Effutu, Gomoa West, Ekumfi, and Shama districts.In response to the outbreak of the pandemic and its implications on coastal communities, CDO educated fisherfolks on the novel coronavirus, its mode of transmission, symptoms, preventive measures, and prescribed means of seeking medical attention. This provided the opportunity to discuss and debunk myths about COVID-19. Demonstrations were also made on the appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE), handwashing with soap under running water, and the application of alcohol-based sanitizers. These engagements were aimed at safeguarding the health and safety of project beneficiaries and target communities.
