Julio João, is 32 years old, married and lives with his wife and 2 children. A member of Age- nur Inclusive Self- Care Group in Monapo, Nampula, Júlio tells us his story. I am affected by leprosy and I am on treatment for 6 months. I joined to the group where I benefited from training on business and rights of disabled people. I am now a member of the task force and my occupational work is carpentry. Through ADEMO members and my group facilitator, I heard about COVID-19.

 

“I think the disease is more dangerous than leprosy, because it does not yet have treatment and kills faster. I stayed with leprosy for many years, without knowing what was that, but if someone is infected by corona virus would die in short time. Through the information i received, the little I know is that the person starts with constipation, fevers, tiredness and difficulty breathing.”
