AS part of its initiative to empower children, the Scripture Union of Lesotho has introduced a COVID-19 outreach campaign.

According to the body’s Field Coordinator Ncineselo Vet, their intention is to teach children various activities which they can engage in without being in physical contact with each other.

Mr Vet said they have to date trained 153 children aged between six and 13 from Ha Thamae in Maseru.

Their plan, he showed is to reach as many children as possible to ensure that a lot of them are well informed about the pandemic.

Among others, the children are taught life skills that include how to survive and take care of themselves away from home.

Earlier on, the union’s National Director Metsi Moholane had underscored their concern over children’s vulnerability to the Coronavirus.

“We are aware that children are more vulnerable especially when their communities do not take necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the pandemic,” Mr Moholane said, urging parents to observe all necessary protocols to ensure the safety of their children.

He added: “It is important to leave children under the care of mature people who can guarantee their safety.”

He further appealed to parents to ensure that their children do not participate in contact sports, especially those that involve sharing equipment.

Scripture Union encourages the public to heed the government’s call to observe set World Health Organisation (WHO)’s safety protocols like social distancing, regular washing of hands and staying at home.
