MPILO FOUNDATION AND THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19
In the Netherlands, we are concerned about the coronavirus and rightly so. As of April 2021, over 135 million people have tested positive and almost 3 million people have died from COVID-19 disease.
In Zimbabwe, out of over 37,000 people who have so far tested positive, 1535 have died. The most important thing is to prevent a corona infection. That is why we use measures such as ‘1.5 meters social distancing’ and ‘washing hands’. In Zimbabwe, women and girls often have to walk for miles to fetch water. Can we imagine that, while we have several water taps in our houses? Because the corona pandemic is also ongoing in Zimbabwe and preventive measures are the most important, the Mpilo Foundation has already taken action in the spring of 2020.
Water is very important in the fight against corona.
Zimbabwe has been in lockdown (a new word to us, which we all know now) since March 30. That means people should stay at home and not travel together with more than two people. Drilling companies are only allowed to drive to places where drilling is to take place with a special permission statement.
