The CAPEMA Orphanage free of COVID-19

Since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11 and with countries around the world reporting cases on a daily basis, we have paid special attention to how this situation is affecting the CAPEMA Orphanage, in Sikasso (Mali) by maintaining close contact with the Center’s Management and taking an interest in the health of the children and their caregivers.

In a country that has a very weakened health system where almost the entire region lacks access to something as basic as water, the news we have received from the Center’s Management is most reassuring as they have informed us that they there are no affected people in the center and that, within the prevention measures that have been established in the region, they are able to continue with their usual daily routines.

The figures regarding positive cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Africa are very few, yet from here at the Canis Majoris Foundation we will continue to monitor the evolution of the pandemic and will report any news that we receive from the center.

Likewise, we continue to contribute to the development of the projects that are underway in the Orphanage, ensuring the quality of life and well-being of its small residents.
