In the article published on its website dated September 3, 2020, OCHA says that, “in collaboration with the Government of Zambia and partners, DAPP has supported nearly 2,000 inmates in nine correctional facilities, including three for juveniles, by providing them with life skills and emphasizing the need to abide by COVID-19 regulations in prisons.”

The article says DAPP Zambia Managing Director, “Ms Soerensen and her team have installed “Tippy Taps” – hand washing facilities made from small containers – in some villages and provided training to communities on how to stay safe” and that, “amid the socioeconomic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, DAPP has also enabled several youth living with HIV to start self-help groups to support one another.”

The report further reveals that, “since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, DAPP has reached more than 500,000 people directly through sensitization about the coronavirus, including with guidance on prevention measure." read here for the full article
