MPILO FOUNDATION AND THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19
In the Netherlands, we are concerned about the corona virus. Rightly so. As of writing, May 1, 2020, over 40,000 people have tested positive and 4,893 people have died from Covid-19 disease associated with the Corona virus.
In Zimbabwe, the counter stands at 40 people tested positively, of which four 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 biggest corona outbreak is yet to come in Zimbabwe and preventive measures are the most important, Mpilo Foundation took action. 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 with two or more people together. Drilling companies are not allowed to drive to places where drilling is required.
