With COVID-19 beginning to crop up in Sierra Leone, President Bio has issued a state of emergency and closed schools as preventive measures. The entire country had a three day lock down over the weekend, which may be repeated as deemed necessary.
The CRC counseling unit is holding a series of workshops facilitated by Mercy Hospital's Dr. Aruna Stevens to help parents learn how to keep safe from COVID-19. The first workshop was held March 26 and at the conclusion, each family was provided with a bar of soap. The workshops will continue until all CRC families have had a chance to attend.
