Fatima Talks About COVID-19 Comic

Fatima is a young girl from Africaid Zvandiri in Zimbabwe who is helping children and young people learn more about COVID-19. Africaid and Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Health and Child Care produced these comics to provide young people with accurate and engaging information about COVID-19 with clear and positive messages. The comics cover information on COVID-19 as well as information for young people living with HIV on taking their treatment and attending clinic appointments. The comics support animations about Fatima also produced by Africaid and the Zimbabwean Ministry of Health and Child Care. These comics are available in 4 other languages besides English.

Stop COVID-19 Infographics

I am incredibly proud to share that we (SRHIN) have produced the #stopcovid19 Infographics in over 80 local languages (esp from Africa) to ensure that people have the right health information about preventing #covid19. The infographics can be publicly accessed at www.tinyurl.com/stopcovid.

It is sad that some people especially in the local communities & slums in Africa still believe that COVID-19 or “Coro Coro” like it’s popularly called is a ‘foreign’ or a ‘rich’ persons disease that cannot affect them. There have been reported cases of Chloroquine abuse among young people & even some African parents were reported to give their children hand sanitiser to drink after coughing to ‘prevent’ them from having the novel coronavirus.

Hence, it is important that evidence-based messages (from World Health Organization & other reliable sources) are tailor-made in their local languages to reach and empower them.

With our over 80 infographics designs we can empower so many communities in Africa and beyond & give them hope that we will beat the novel coronavirus.
