Youth Alliance for Leadership and Development in Africa (YALDA): Joins the fight against Covid-19 in Liberia

COVID-19 AWARENESS IN CALDWELL, NEW GEORGIA

The Youth Alliance for Leader and Development in Africa (YALDA) is an international youth organization that has its established branch in Liberia called: YALDA Liberia.

YALDA Liberia, with deep passion and commitment to the welfare of the African continent, officially joined the fight against the deadly Coronavirus disease in Liberia with a launched self-supported Coronavirus awareness of three categorical activities to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Liberia and beyond.

The three separate activities with one common goal are:

  1. Online Coronavirus Awareness (OCA)
  2. Coronavirus Communities’ Awareness (CCA)
  3. Self-Coronavirus Community Awareness (SCA)
  1. Online Coronavirus Awareness (OCA)

Social media platforms serve as one of the means to spread information and reach more people in a short time. Therefore, YALDA Liberia decided to make use of the social media space by launching the Online Coronavirus Awareness (OCA). This initiative engaged a large number of social media users with basic information and updates on the COVID-19 pandemic with a focus on Transmission, Symptoms, and Prevention.

  1. Coronavirus Communities’ Awareness (CCA)

The reality that most common community dwellers do not have access to the internet or social media prompted YALDA Liberia to launch the Coronavirus Communities’ Awareness (CCA). The CCA was officially launched on Saturday, April 4, 2020, in the Caldwell New Georgia Community with eight (8) volunteers who educated and informed the community dwellers about the pandemic highlighting that the Coronavirus exists, and sharing information on the Transmission, Symptoms, and Prevention. Also, as part of the activities to keep the community dwellers informed at all times, YALDA Liberia printed over two hundred (200) flyers and distributed to community dwellers carrying the basic preventive measure.

  1. Self-Coronavirus Community Awareness (SCA)

YALDA Liberia wants youth to contribute and impact their communities while extending at the national and continental levels. Therefore, the Self-Coronavirus Community Awareness (SCA) initiative was introduced to reduce the high risk of interaction/contact by means of moving from one community to another. This initiative allows YALDA Liberia volunteers, members, and other community youth to sanitize fellow community dwellers about the virus and its prevention. This has been carried out in many communities where our members live.

DISTRIBUTION OF AWARENESS FLYERS

Special message from YALDA Liberia:

The fight against Coronavirus can only be achieved by collective efforts, collaboration, partnership, interconnection, and strong solidarity. This means, everyone must be a responsible citizen and follow all the health protocols as well as sanitize others to follow suit. With joint effort, Coronavirus can be defeated in the soonest possible time.
