FCC, Through the Support of UNOPS & Irish Aid Provides 5 Communities with Hand Washing Support to Help Stop the Spread of Covid-19.

Freetown City Council (FCC), through the support of UNOPS and Irish Aid, has provided 10 hand-washing Stations, with hand sanitizers and soaps to 5 communities in Freetown as part of the behavioral change efforts to ending COVID-19 in Freetown.
The 5 communities – Sir Samuel Lewis Road Aberdeen, Cola Tree Community, Aberdeen Ferry Road, Syke Street, Cold Water community Blackhall Road, Shell Old Road and Jalloh Terrace – are beneficiaries of FCC’s Disaster Resilience Project. Through the project, footbridges and drainages were constructed in these communities as part of FCC’s efforts to reduce disaster risk and flooding in Freetown. The project is now contributing to FCC’s behavior change support in the Council’s efforts to #StopTheSpread of #COVID19.
Freetown City Council believes in a community approach as the means to end COVID-19 in Sierra Leone and we are appreciative to our partners supporting us in this fight. We will continue to work with vulnerable communities in the areas of flood prevention, disaster risk mitigation, and behavioural change support as we fight against Covid-19.
Thank you to UNOPS and Irish Aid for the support!
