Valiant People of Benin;
Dear fellow citizens;
The Covid-19 pandemic is indeed a sad reality; evidenced by the appalling statistics about our country as well as most other nations in the world, which continues to rise by the hour.
It is therefore more than ever an imperative for everyone to observe and observe all the measures prohibited in order to contain this global scourge as soon as possible. Our survival and that of humanity could depend on it.
However, the fatal mistake not to make is to forget that we are on many fronts of struggle. We must therefore put in place effective strategies not only to defeat coronavirus but also to save our children from the throes of malaria in these times of high endemicity.
The NGO FAITH by my voice calls on on the one hand to raise awareness so that all children and pregnant women actually sleep every time and every time under mosquito nets impregnated with long-acting insecticides; in sanitized environments with fences at the doors and windows of concessions.
On the other hand, we call for a national outpouring of solidarity so that spontaneously in all parts of our country every citizen who meets the criteria for eligibility for the donation, arm himself with his arsenal of protection against coronavirus and go to the fixed collection centers of the ANTS, give some of his blood.
In doing so, we will not only win on the battlefield of Covid-19; but we will also minimize deaths from malaria and all other health emergencies where only blood transfusion is the life-saving solution. So let’s make sure that even in these times of crisis, blood awaits the patients of our hospitals.
God bless Benin and the other nations of the world; and let him make us go through these moments of tribulations triumphantly.
