A SOCIAL ethics advocacy group, the Civil Society Network in Anambra State, has intensified its anti-coronavirus campaigns in rural communities.

  Communities visited over the weekend included Egbengwu village Nimo in Njikoka Local Government Area, Nkwere village Umunnachi, Etiti village Ukwulu and Nawgu all in Dunukofia Local Government Area where the group reached out to persons living with disabilities, youths, the elderly and women.

  According to the President of the Association, Chris Azor, the campaign became necessary as the society’s membership cut across the society, and the attendant need to transform as many lives as possible among the vulnerable groups.

  Azor regretted that many people in the society still lack the basic knowledge of COVID-19.

  In her own remark, a member of the organization, Tina Igbasi reminded women that the period is a time to strongly hold on to family planning in addition to ensuring close monitoring of their children and wards. She spoke in similar vein as Wife of Nawgu Monarch, Mrs. Ndidika Okaa-Onuogu and others who volunteered comments in the three communities.

  It will be recalled that Anambra Civil Society COVID-19 Network commenced aggressive enlightenment campaign as part of measures to enlighten all categories of people in the society on the devastating effect of coronavirus pandemic including its symptoms.
