This mini-FAQ is being updated as we get new information and comments. At this point, the scientific evidence is limited, so we also use informal sources such as media as well as our own observations in WoMena’s work. Comments, questions, corrections are welcome.
WoMena’s contribution: WoMena works in a wide range of contexts in Uganda, including refugee settlements. In the COVID-19 crisis, we find the use of washable and reusable products such as cups or pads even more relevant, as they are less dependent on the supply chain.
We are stepping up the use of distance learning and participation to work around the need for social distancing. We have of course instituted contingency plans for staff, consistent with Government guidelines.
