The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting everyone, everywhere. Nerveless, the impacts are being felt differently among different groups of people, in most cases, deepening existing inequalities, especially in post conflicts and fragile environments.
Volunteers for Sustainable Development in Africa (VOSIEDA) and partners continue to roll out risk-control measures for COVID 19 to provide for the need of the most vulnerable. Our team is ensuring the implementation of public health measures for disease control and WHO guidelines for social distancing, regular hand washing with soap and clean water as well the use of hand sanitizers as we distribute food to millions of vulnerable households in Liberia.
Local communities in Liberia have become prone to the adverse effects of global climate change. Increased in temperature, changes in precipitation patterns, and more frequent extreme proceedings resulting in erratic rainfall pattern, floods and crops failures are already being experienced (NAPA, Liberia, 2008).
