Poly Youth in Mask up campaign
Manyozo, who is working alongside fellow students Yamikani Kambala and Menia Kaputa together with volunteers in various districts, have started distributing in Blantyre where they have so far shared over 1000 masks.
“We decided to engage in this initiative after noticing that many young people do not put-on masks because of the belief that Corona Virus mostly attack the elderly. We are also advocating and educating them that, they may not feel the symptoms but they can be carriers whereby they can infect the vulnerable groups, hence the emphasis of them to wear masks all the time,” Manyozo said.
Apart from distributing in schools, they have also dispersed in churches, in the streets randomly and have been sending to other partners in the districts across the country who does it on their behalf.
The team is self-sponsored therefore is appealing to the public and well-wishers to support this cause by donating either cash or masks so that they are able to reach out to the rural areas.
