Rwanda like many other countries in the world has been affected by COVID 19. Currently, 54 positive cases have been confirmed and more than 600 people are suspected and have been put in isolation.
The government of Rwanda has put in place different measures on different levels to prevent wider spread of Covid 19 and combatting new infections. Initially; the government closed all Places of worship, schools and higher education institutions both public and private. All employees were advised to work from home, large gathering like meetings, workshops were postponed, and unnecessary movement were restricted.
One week later, it was realized by the Government of Rwanda that more measures should be taken to strengthen the prevention of COVID-19 and these include; stopping unnecessary movements outside the home (STAY HOME), all employees shall work at home except those who provide essential basic services (health care), borders were closed including the airport, travels between different cities and districts in the country are not permitted, shops and markets were closed except food and hygienic stuff, motorcycles are not allowed to carry passengers, all bars are closed, and flights have all been postponed.
This situation is affecting people who survive based on daily earning from the casual work accomplished, most of them now have challenges of food, hygiene materials, water, wood, and so on to survive.
KEEPCARE RWANDA, is requesting everybody who can help to support these people now in emergency need. The government through local leaders has started to support as vulnerable people are listed to get support in their cells and villages.
Our concern is about teen mothers, they need food, hygiene materials, milk for kids, etc for surviving during this trying period. We call upon all people, organizations, foundations, churches, companies to help those teen mothers at this challenging time.
