8 Million People - 1 Ventilator
As the UK struggles to come to terms with the coronavirus pandemic and our well-equipped healthcare system is threatened with being overwhelmed, the situation for those living in less developed countries is dire. As President Julius Maada Bio of Sierra Leone addressed his people on national television, he warned that it is no longer a question of ‘whether’ the coronavirus will come to Sierra Leone, but ‘when’. The neighbouring countries now have the disease and Sierra Leone is desperately trying to prepare. But its situation is devastating; it’s reported that there is only one ventilator in the whole country and so the only hope lies in minimising the spread of the disease.
PFP has had a long-standing relationship with Sierra Leone and we want to help. Our protégés, the Future View Film Group, had great success with their video used to fight EBOLA. We’ve been in touch with them and they plan to swing into immediate action to produce and distribute a similar music video to educate people on ways to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The video will be suitable for distribution via mobile phones, radio, TV and social media. With your help, we can make this happen almost immediately so that vital information reaches communities straight away and people know how to protect themselves. This will save lives.
