Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has concluded a Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic control project in the Republic of Panama, in partnership with the Panamanian Red Cross, as part of QRCS's initiative to back the fellow National Societies in 22 countries across six continents around the world.
The project is aimed at supporting public authorities and the fellow National Society in the fight against Covid-19; reaching out to vulnerable communities that have high sources of Covid-19 contamination; and delivering food, medical, and protective aid to inaccessible areas.
Under the project, food parcels, personal protection equipment (PPE), cleaning supplies, and medicines were distributed under the supervision of the General Director of the Panamanian Red Cross, Larissa Rodriguez.
About 916,650 people were reached out directly (51% men and 49% women) in three provinces: Colon, Panama Oeste, and Veraguas (covering more than 80% of the country's total population highly affected by the pandemic).
Several partners were involved in the implementation of the project, including International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the Spanish Red Cross. In addition, volunteers of the Panamanian Red Cross launched community awareness campaigns to send messages to the public about the risks and prevention of the virus. (QNA)
