With the rapid rise in Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases worldwide and in fatalities, some countries, such as Sudan are unfortunately less prepared than others. Sudan is a country that has struggled with economic instability for decades and is inexplicably unprepared to deal with a virus outbreak. Sudan has limited resources and infrastructure to respond to a pandemic so it is vital that we invest in awareness and preventive efforts now!
Currently, a collection of organizations are working together to raise funds to support initiatives that are currently working on COVID-19 awareness and prevention in Sudan. These efforts include:
-The University of Sudan’s Chemistry Department has been creating thousands of hand sanitizers, disinfectant sprays and hand sanitizing wipes in the university lab to distribute to those in need.
- Organizations, such as, Fil-a-heart, Sudanese Diaspora Network (SDN), the Sudanese American Collective (SAC), MovingForwardSudan (MFS), and the Sudanese Youth Network (SYN) are helping raise funds to providing essential clean water, food, and electricity in efforts to help those quarantine safety .
Alongside these organizations, we plan on donating 20% of our Sudan Apparel proceeds until the end of the campaign to help reach the $6,000 goal! For more information about the campaign, click here.
