Hand Sanitizers And Soap For Africa Smallholder Farmers To Curb COVID-19

Safe Hands For Smallholder Farmers in Africa

Worldwide, more than 5 million confirmed cases of coronavirus ‘COVID-19’ in 185 countries as of May 21st 2020, has been reported with devastating effects on our everyday lives. The vulnerable Africa continent especially the smallholder farmers has been hit hard due to lack of information and the financial means to prevent themselves from the fast spreading virus.

EuroAfri Link has added its voice to the fight against COVID-19 by donating a minimal of 1000 hand sanitizers, masks and soap  to smallholder farmers in 10 African countries among which; Uganda, Rwanda, Malawi, Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya. We want to help our farmers  wade-off the virus. Our goal is to reach 50,000 farmers and pastoralists in rural Africa especially youths and women led businesses.  Our starting point is Rwanda and Uganda whom we have trusted local partners on the ground Ingabo Syndicate  and AfriFood,  and whom we greatly collaborate. Also, EAL is having some projects in these countries at the moment.

We acknowledge the disruptions that COVID-19 has had on food systems in developing countries especially in Africa were tighter border controls were instituted and national lockdowns all which have led to immense loses and livelihood disruptions. Together with our partners, we are focused on helping smallholder farmers restart in a much better and smarter way. We appeal for your support to enhance this investment in people who feed 80% of Africa’s population and beyond.

Our plea to our well-wishers is to join us to help these farmers during these difficult times by donating more hand sanitizers, masks and soap to reach our goal of 50, 000 farmers in Africa. Our field collaborators and local partners are doing their optimum best to sensitise the farmers on the preventive measures and we will make sure your donation reaches the right users.
