It also created awareness on safety precautions to the general populace in each of the communities across the two LGAs.

The six months project intervention has been working with critical stakeholders like the traditional and religious leaders at the grassroots, sensitizing communities on the COVID-19 pandemic, adopting available mechanisms and supporting vulnerable groups and their livelihood potentials, while collaborating with other ECID partners in engaging with government to proffer solutions on COVID-19 challenges and advocating for the implementation of reforms that would boost the economy.

The distribution of fertilizers is targeted to widows, the aged and people with disabilities to reduce the hardship being experienced by this category of people who suffer most in the communities.
