Foreseeing that a pandemic response without adequate social protection would result in societal unrest and healthcare overload, Strategy and Innovation for Development was compelled to implement an awareness campaign about Covid-19, its prevention and recovery. After receiving training, over 50 volunteers were deployed in 25 communities across Nigeria. These volunteers delivered food and hygiene materials and educated 25 families on precautionary measures. The organization also provided mini-grants to 18 NGOs supporting other Covid-19 response actions, and donated personal protective equipment to eight community health centres.
