We are pleased to announce that the co-funded project by EU and Austrian government "Effective inclusion and participation for children with disabilities in quality education, health and social services in Zambia” has been reoriented to align with the Zambian national Covid-19 contingency plan. This action has been prompted under Team Europe initiative in global response to Covid-19 pandemic.
The SOS Children’s Village together with its co-applicants the Disability Rights Watch (DRW), Archie Hinchcliffe Disability Intervention (AHDI) and SOS Kinderdorf Austria – as implementing partners - have integrated Covid-19 prevention measures in their ongoing activities in Eastern Province of Zambia. So far, awareness raising programmes on community radio have been undertaken, including distribution of personal hygiene items such as face masks, hand sanitisers and soap. The supplies aim to enhance efforts of the partners who are on the ground and are working hard to provide appropriate responses to the Covid-19 emergency.
