Peace building is the foundation for creating sustainable human security and equitable development in countries emerging from conflict.

UNSC resolution 1325 recognizes that women are disproportionally affected by conflict, and to address this, women should play a key role in achieving lasting peace after conflict.

We have launched a new campaign aims to address challenges imposed by coronavirus in Western Equatoria state.

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country, there has been an increased gender base violence across South Sudan.

We believe that, awareness campaign on sexual reproductive health, continues covid19 awareness and gender based violence are the best approaches to address some of the challenges created by coronavirus in the state.

Jonathan Bage who is our Executive Director revealed this during an exclusive interview with Anisa FM Radio on Tuesday in Yambio town.

So far we have reached nearly 2000 households with the campaign.

The door to door campaign was initiated in July and is being supported by AMRF through shabab le shabab movement.

Last week, our team was at Yambio FM to discuss early and child marriage in Western Equatoria state.

According to UN children’s agency UNICEF, 52% of girls in South Sudan are married before their 18th birthday, the fifth highest rate of child marriage in the world.

We were able to advice children about moving with wrong groups; explain dangers associated with early pregnancy and forced marriages.

We also appealed to the parents to be closer to their daughters during this time of school closure.

Thank you our partners

YAMBIO: Last week, with support from Democracy International, we were able to engage stakeholders including the Police, parents, community leaders, church leaders and teachers on the dangers of early pregnancy and child marriages in the society.

“At first I thought the parents have absolute right on the lives of their children, but now I know that raising a child is a collective effort and any crime against the child should be addressed collectively by the duty bearers.” said, Paul Sammy Nzereme one of the participant.

In addition, the forum will provide technical support for national policies, strategies and plan developments.

Also to sensitize and conduct awareness in the communities on COVID-19 pandemic.

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION: Are smokers and tobacco users at higher risk of COVID-19 infection?

Smokers are likely to be more vulnerable to COVID-19 as the act of smoking means that fingers (and possibly contaminated cigarettes) are in contact with lips, which increases the possibility of transmission of virus from hand to mouth.

Smokers may also already have lung disease or reduced lung capacity, which would greatly increase risk of serious illness.

Smoking products such as water pipes often involve the sharing of mouth pieces and hoses, which could facilitate the transmission of COVID-19 in communal and social settings.

Conditions that increase oxygen needs or reduce the ability of the body to use it properly will put patients at higher risk of serious lung conditions such as pneumonia.

BASIC PROTECTIVE MEASURES AGAINST THE NEW CORONAVIRUS

1. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

2. MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

When someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth, which may contain virus.

If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

3. AVOID TOUCHING EYES, NOSE AND MOUTH
Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

4. PRACTICE RESPIRATORY HYGIENE
Make sure you and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene, you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance.

YAMBIO: Career guidance is a comprehensive and developmental program designed to assist individuals in making and implementing informed educational and occupational choices.

In simple words, it is a journey on which people develop to make mature and informed decisions.

Over 100 countries have now reported laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID19.

WHO has issued a consolidated package of existing preparedness and response guidance for countries to enable them to slow and stop COVID-19 transmission and save lives. WHO is urging all countries to prepare for the potential arrival of COVID-19 by readying emergency response systems; increasing capacity to detect and care for patients; ensuring hospitals have the space, supplies and necessary personnel; and developing life-saving medical interventions.

It is the responsibility of everybody to protect each other’s from any disease.
