We are continuing the distribution of the face mask to the Congolese Refugees who were recently brought to Zone 1 at Village 12 and we shall distribute to the Persons with Special needs through their leaders
The aim of this face mask distribution is to provide protection against Covid-19 to the vulnerable community to allow them access servces and the different community centers without limitation and the goal is to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 among the community in Bidibidi Refugee Settlement
