Coronavirus (COVID-19) Crisis Response Program for Nigeria, CCRPN.
Coronavirus (also known as Covid-19) is a global infectious epidemic that has infected more than 12 million people and killed over 500,000 worldwide.
As the virus finds its way and spreads in Nigeria, PASDO, under its Coronavirus (COVID-19) Crisis Response Program for Nigeria (CCRPN), is leading efforts to enhance the ability of Nigerians to cope with the crisis.
The CCRPN is a non-profit initiative to support Nigerians at this difficult time.
It is completely independent of the government.
Among others, the CCRPN aims to achieve the following objectives:
To maintain a Coronavirus helpline to provide psychological support and medical advice to distressed Nigerians, including medical workers working in the front-lines.
This support is available in English, Pidgin English and the three major languages in Nigeria – Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba – so as to be accessible by at least 100 million Nigerians who speak either of the languages.
To engage in public-health information campaigns about the virus and also fight the spread of fake news using various channels including social media. Volunteers who would like to be part of the information campaign on social media can find more information on the Volunteers section below.
Food and Emergency Aid
To provide food items and basic needs to vulnerable Nigerians, including those who survive on daily wages but can no longer earn income to feed and take care of their basic needs due to the wide-scale lock-downs imposed to contain the spread of Covid-19. Donations are currently being accepted for this via the Donate section below.
