Marcelino Viagem is 50 years old. Married and father of 9 children, he is a farmer and resident of Moniua, Curruane Locality in Ile District- Zambézia. He practices agriculture for family food security and source of income. He is a community volunteer and one of the beneficiaries of the training on Corona Virus information dissemination in his village and says:

“I heard about corona virus for the first time by community radio and in the information and dissemination lectures at the local health unit.”

The local leader reported that there would be training for volunteers to disseminate information on prevention measures and I was invited to be a part. After the training, Marcelino says that is now well informed about the disease.

 

“I feel able to disseminate information, especially to the preventive measures learned about the disease. with this knowledge I will bring significant change in my community because one of the purposes of the training is that each trained volunteer makes replica through door-to-door visits.” Thank you for the opportunity.
