Rajuma, mum of 18-month-old Asma, is excited to get some soap.
In Cox's Bazar, COVID-19 threatens to spread like wildfire through the largest refugee camps in the world. Thanks to your support, World Vision staff and volunteers are mobilised and supporting families like Rajuma’s. Providing families with soap and sharing information about how to keep their loved ones safe.
Rajuma shared, “I have heard about coronavirus from a volunteer in our block. He advised me not to talk with people, not to come out of the house except for urgent needs and not to visit other blocks”.
The volunteer that Rajuma met also told her how to keep her children safe at home by washing their hands very frequently and avoiding mass gatherings.
“To keep us protected and safe from various illness(es), we will wash our hands and our clothes, and take baths with this soap. To keep us protected from fever, diarrhoea, coughs, we can maintain cleanliness and personal hygiene using this soap.”
