COVID Relief

COVID relief programme safeguards 500 women, men and children from poor households through better information sharing, access to increased hygiene and nutrition.

Final Campaign Report

Local Solution

In all, 64 people including children, women and men were reached. The breakdown are as follows:

  • Total number of children: 38
  • Total number of women: 19
  • Total number of men: 7

Overall number: 64 people including women and children. The children (38 in all) benefitted from donation/ supply of food and PPEs. The women (19 in all and mostly mothers) benefitted from awareness campaigns on covid prevention and treatment. They also received some PPEs. The men (7 in all) on the other hand, received education on the vaccination.

 

Adaptions of the project

The project intended to target more than 300 women and children from 60 households that are impacted by the devastating effects of COVID -19 pandemic in known slums in the Greater Accra region. However, due to the limited amount of funds received, only seven (7) households were reached with a total number of 64 beneficiaries in Kasoa, a suburb in the Central Region of Ghana. The funds were used to purchase food and medical supplies to these beneficiaries. In addition, the roll out of the vaccination campaign by government empowered a number of the intended beneficiaries thereby decreasing the intended target number. ACEC took advantage of this to also educate the households on the vaccination programme.

 

Community Impact

Awareness on the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 disease has increased greatly. Head of households who are mostly men have also gained instructive education on the vaccination programme being rolled out by the government. Two men out of the seven, have duly gone for vaccination. This will empower them to work hard to fend for their households despite the prevalence of the disease in the country.

 

Financial Report

Community impact 

The project will also contribute to flattening the curve of COVID-19 in these communities, as the recipients would not have to scramble for food and overlook the recommended social distance and are now better informed. In addition, the items will be sourced from a local network of grocery shops and pharmacies which will also benefit from the project.

Budget

For the first 100 households ACEC requires donations totaling GHS 28,000 (or €4,109). The donations will be used for:

  • Purchasing food, cooking equipment, hygiene and medical supplies for 100 households.
  • Sensitization and campaign sessions. And the purchase of items to promote publicity of the project such as T-shirts, flyers and brochures for project recipients.

Every additional donation will benefit even more families. Also, ACEC will deploy internal funding for the other activities associated with the project since this is a program that started running at the onset of COVID-19 in Ghana. ACEC aims to collect in total GHS 84,000 (or €12,328) for 300 households. That is €41 per household.
