Our foundation is supporting those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. We are supporting frontline healthcare workers and our communities battling COVID-19.

Many residents are unaware of how serious the Covid-19 disease is, and despite sensitisation messages on the pandemic, some did not believe COVID-19 is real. We Odibu foundation and frontline health officials warried by this situation, tried our possible best to convince residents to submit themselves for testing so infected persons could be isolated and treated.

Odibu foundation and frontline health workers embarked on public health education that has helped the people to adhere to all the covid-19 prevention protocols; maintaining social distance, regular hand washing, frequent using of alcohol based sanitizers and wearing of nose mask. These have drastically reduced the spike of the virus in our communities.

Because frontline health workers are integral to the global response to COVID-19, Odibu Foundation is expanding the support we provide to the health care workers on the frontlines of responding to this crisis.

In hospitals, clinics and homes in Nigeria, health workers are taking on significant personal risk and too often working without adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure all of us can receive the care we need. The current crisis is demonstrating the essential, tireless, innovative and too- often undervalued role of health workers in ensuring strong, resilient health systems for everyone, everywhere.
We are delivering critical support to communities and health workers on the frontlines. In march 2021 Odibu foundation supported frontline health workers with meals, personal protection equipment (PPE), and other incentives to encourage the health workers in the fields.

COVID-19 has brought us face-face with the vast devastation infection disease can bring to individuals, families, communities in Nigeria and the world. At the same time,

this unprecedented crisis has cast new light on the essential, selfless and Innovation role health workers play.

Odibu foundation is commitment to help build resilient community – based health systems with thriving frontline health workers of their health.
