Demonstrating Social Distancing to the Men in Malkohi IDP Camp in Yola, Adamawa State before I showed them how to wash their hands, held a Mini Masterclass on the risks of COVID-19 for them and used the chance to tell them to shun gender violence.????

You know now, any chance women get to address African Men, it’s a good opportunity to remind them to be mindful of the women in their lives and treat them with care and caution.❤????

I spoke the “shikini” hausa I remember from my time at the “prestigious” University of Jos and then spoke English at intervals and had Esther, our VSF Program Officer in Yola to translate for me.

The Elites of Nigeria have TV, Radio, Social Media and Cable TV. The Rural Areas have None.
We must not abandon them to perish out of ignorance so the #VSFCovid19Intervention is investing in Risk Perception and Communication Campaigns in Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, Kanuri, Fufulde and Pidgin English Languages.

Look out for them soon.
Thanks to Suleiman, our VSF Expediter for taking the Photos and Videos during the Exercise.
