Speaking to newsmen while distributing free face masks and exercise books to primary school pupils of Isoko North local government area of Delta state recently, Project Coordinator of Onuesoke Foundation, Mr Steven Agadagba, said in order to create more awareness about the existence of the dreaded Covid-19 disease in schools and to help prevent its spread among children, the Foundation had deemed it necessary to extend its earlier Covid-19 awareness Campaign to schools in Delta State.
Describing the Foundation distribution of facemasks and exercise books to schools as ‘Phase II Covid-19 Awareness Creation’ the Project Coordinator stated that beside distribution of facemasks to schools earlier this year, it had equally distributed numerous exercise books to school children in order to encourage their academic development.
“Here at Onuesoke Foundation, we exist for humanity even as we trust God to help us reach out to the whole world by leaving no stone unturned in protection of human live and educational development our children,” he stated.
Agadagba recalled that in order to save lives, the Foundation had earlier this embarked on three weeks sensitisation campaign aimed at inculcating a high sense of awareness among rural dwellers to promote a clean, safe and healthy culture as a way of mitigating against the spread of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.
