UHEAL Charities Collaborates with Ihube General Assembly on COVID-19 Palliative and Community Outreach Education
In these trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic, UHEAL Charities, under the leadership of Hon. Sir Albert Onyema Ukaigwe, has been at the forefront of providing support and education to the Ihube community. Our collaboration with the Ihube General Assembly has been a beacon of hope and solidarity, bringing together resources and hearts to combat the challenges brought on by the pandemic.
Empowering the Community Through Education and Support
The UHEAL Charities team, led by Dr. Patricia U. Ukaigwe, developed comprehensive educational materials on COVID-19, translated into the Ihuo dialect by Uche Cletus Onyewuoha, ensuring accessibility for all community members. This initiative was crucial in promoting personal hygiene, social distancing, and caring for the sick, in alignment with WHO and NCDC/CDC guidelines.
Our educational campaign reached every household in Ihube, thanks to the dedicated efforts of 27 volunteers who worked tirelessly to distribute flyers and impart knowledge about the virus, its prevention, and care measures.
COVID-19 Palliatives for Widows and Orphans
Recognizing the unique challenges faced by widows and orphans, UHEAL Charities successfully completed a distribution drive on July 9, 2020, for these vulnerable groups in the Ogube-Ihube Autonomous Community. Our efforts ensured that 351 individuals received essential support, marking a significant milestone in our commitment to the community.
Donation of PPEs to Federal Medical Center Umuahia
In a continuous effort to combat COVID-19, UHEAL Charities donated vital Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) to the Federal Medical Center Umuahia. This contribution underscores our dedication to safeguarding healthcare workers and the broader community.
