WHAT EVENT OR PROJECT OR PROGRAMME OR CAMPAIGN THAT NEEDS SUPPORT 

We always have initiatives that need funding and/or other forms of support. 

We are currently appealing to you to help SAVE, REBUILD AND SUSTAIN LIVES FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC through the following Coronavirus Spring Project.

 

 

The Coronavirus Spring Project (CSP)

This Spring 2020 is special with the outbreak and crisis of the coronavirus pandemic.  The all world (including Africa) is affected by the fatal and dramatic impacts of coronavirus pandemic.  The local people and areas in Africa in which we work are also affected by these devastative impacts. 

It is pointless to give facts and figures about these impacts as one can always visit the websites of the World Health Organisation (at www.who.org) and of any governments of the world, they will find all the figures, facts and updates about it.

However, what is important RIGHT NOW is our collective response to fight the coronavirus pandemic.  There are already several initiatives in place including funding appeals about this sanitary cause at many levels (national, continental and multilateral agencies).

This current project is about adding value to those works or efforts which have been already undertaken so that the poorest people are not left behind during and after the tragic events of coronavirus pandemic.

Like any project, CSP has been prepared according to project planning and development.  Amongst the elements making its planning and development process, we have included in this presentation three of them, which are: project aim, objectives and benefits.

 

One (1) Aim, Four (4) Objectives and Twenty (20) Benefits or Reliefs to SAVE, REBUILD and SUSTAIN lives in Africa.

 

Statement of CSP aim and objectives

CSP Aim

The overall aim of CSP is to reduce sanitary poverty, save, rebuild and sustain lives of the victims of the coronavirus pandemic in Africa by helping them to access life-sustaining sanitary goods and appropriate medical support as well as helping them to apply and cope with the health security measures required to effectively to stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic until such a time a medicine and a vaccine will be available.

CSP will contribute to the application and coping strategies related to measures such as self-isolation, confinement, human barrier strategy, social distancing, etc. against this deadly virus.  The added value or effort brought by CSP is highly needed in developing places and countries (like of Africa) where healthcare systems are often unprepared or they do not simply have enough resources and logistics to cope with the health crisis of this magnitude.  For these places, every effort counts, however little it may be, to save, rebuild and sustain lives.

CSP Objectives

In order to achieve the above stated aim, the following  four objectives have been identified:

√ To help emergency action plans put by local government and health organisations to save, rebuild and sustain lives

√ To help alleviate the symptoms of Covid-19 until such time a medicine and vaccine are found

√ To help people implement anti-coronavirus stringent social and health security measures required to flatten the curve of Covid-19 and to delay the spread of the virus and to contain it until a real cure is found

√ To help isolate cases and remove infected people from the communities in the interest of everybody and the world.

 These objectives are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based).

CSP benefits

The main direct beneficiaries of this project will be the vulnerable people to the coronavirus pandemic, which are: the elderly, sick, young children and pregnant women.   The rest of the population and the rest of the world will indirectly benefit since this virus does not have any specific passport it can travel anywhere in the world.

There are twenty benefits that we have been identified, if anyone donates or pledges or even makes a gift aid declaration, which are:

Buy soap to wash hands (1)

Run awareness campaign against the virus disease (2)

Purchase hand sanitiser gel (3)

Provide tissues and gloves for cleaning (4)

Supply cleaning and hygiene products (such as bleach and other disinfectants) (5)

CENFACS also helps them to develop a viable, accountable way to helping them to help themselves in building their capacity, particularly in the ever changing development landscape as it deems the case now with the 2030 Agenda and Global Goals for Sustainable Development, the new International Climate Change Agreement and the African Union Agenda 2063.
