Tape and Suzan went to the village with the purpose of meeting with some local leaders so as to discuss the way forward to the program activities. When they arrived there, they met some leaders already at the meeting place who warmly welcomed them. After exchanging greetings, together they reminded each other of the previous activities that the community was doing before the country lockdown. The chairperson on behalf of the community reported that most members didn’t have face masks and also washed their hands with plain water without soap saying they couldn’t afford buying soap all the time because once you placed a piece of soap outside in an open place, it would be easily stolen. Some members especially the youth needed more sensitization on issues concerning the current Covid-19 virus because not everyone was following the guidelines according to the World Health Organization. Suzan and Tape encouraged the leaders to see that the other members strictly followed the guidelines during any community activities so as to avoid contracting the disease. They requested the leaders to always carry out a home to home visit at least once in a week so that they monitor the hygiene and sanitation around each home. The staff also encouraged the leaders to be using or mixing their water with liquid soap so as to save soap from being stolen. The leaders were requested to find some tailors within their community and show them some of the sample masks that they received that day so that they would be able to saw for each member at a cheaper price. It was also agreed to resume participating in the program activities in the following coming week but strictly following the Covid-19 guidelines. A few homes would be monitored per day so as to avoid curfew hours. The leaders accepted the new ideas and finally the meeting came to an end.
