A RESPONSE TO COVID-19

Funding update 22072020.png

The COVID-19 situation has impacted Suriname since the beginning of March this year and as of the end of May the situation was relatively controlled with a total of 10 COVID-19 cases reported. The past week the situation changed, and the number of active cases increased exponentially from 10 to 200 active cases as of June 22, 2020. On May 25th the elections in Suriname created a lot of movement, persons traveled between the coastal area (Paramaribo) and the interior (communities in central and southern Suriname). The significance of the spread of COVID-19 and impact within the communities can be mitigated through the support of donations that cover the cost needed for PPEs, communications, education and prevention to minimize the spread between the communities in the interior, including central and southern Suriname.
