Entrepreneur and Social Reformer, Paul Orajiaka has joined in the global fight against the #COVID19 pandemic which has created an atmosphere of fear and uncertainty among Nigerians and most importantly his state of origin Anambra.
Through his Paul Orajiaka Foundation he led a team of young, passionate and vibrant individuals to various communities in Anambra State with relief materials (sanitizers, face masks and food items) to help the people fight against the novel coronavirus and also provide succor ahead of a possible nationwide lockdown.
It’s worthy of note that the people in the inner towns have little or no idea of what the coronavirus is and how it has continually spread globally, so the first task embarked upon by Paul Orajiaka and his team was an Enlightenment drive through which he educated the people on the 5 key pillars of halting the spread of the coronavirus – Handwashing with soap, Use of Sanitizers, Avoiding Large Gatherings or social distancing, Constantly disinfecting surfaces and Self Isolation. He emphasized that “Knowing what they are up against is key for them to know how to combat it”.
From the market, to the streets, homes, the playground and across their different places of business, the Paul Orajiaka Foundation team spent days reaching out to the young and old alike with the assurance of their safety if they #TakeResponsibility.
This is one of the many plans of Paul Orajiaka for the fight against the Coronavirus and it is #ForTheGreaterGood of Anambra State.
