ActionAid are working to reach eight million people in Kenya and Nepal, with a focus on supporting women and girls.
The organization is using mass media and digital channels to raise awareness of the hygiene behaviours that can help people protect themselves against COVID-19. Action Aid has also been repairing safe water sources to ensure communities have access to clean water for handwashing. In addition, ActionAid has been using its networks to give out tens of thousands of soap and surface cleaning products donated by Unilever to the communities where they are needed most. By taking a community-led approach Action Aid are working with local women leaders on secondary impacts of the pandemic, including domestic violence.
