The COVID 19 – deadly contagious virus sickness is speedily spreading all over the world which has infected and killed thousands. Declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization, various measures are being put in place to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
The outbreak has also affected the seamless implementation of the CLSG interconnection project. However, as project activities continue unabated, TRANSCO CLSG along with the EPC contractors in Sierra Leone continue to educate and sensitize more people in the project locations on Coronavirus possible prevention methods and distribute tools to help to curb the spread of the deadly virus.
The EPC contractors including Angelic Tata, KEC and Sieyuan continue to sensitize residents in the CLSG project impacted areas as part of their Corporate Social Responsibilities. The sensitization process is being characterized by presentations on Covid-19 and how to prevent it. Physical display of hand washing, social or physical distancing and other preventive measures are being discussed during these programs.
Several buckets, soaps and gallons of bleach were provided and they are to be used at the entrances of these beneficiary communities including Kamakwei, Thambi, Susudara, Fadugu and Thankorosidi. Other communities including Kasoloba, Fadugu, Bumbuna and Kajida also benefited.
TRANSCO CLSG’s Social Safeguard Assistant in the North Western Region coordinated these activities with the contractors.
