Show your support for Jimiah

Hey, I'm Jimiah!

Jimiah works at the health centre as a midwife run by Save the Children in Bidi Bidi refugee settlement.

“I give the women in my antenatal class updates of corona’s status in Uganda, and brief them on the signs and symptoms. I answer their questions and address their fears. I emphasise basic preventative behaviour such as social distancing, avoiding close contact with people with flu-like symptoms, crowded places and touching their face, good handwashing, and – for those who can afford it – the use of hand sanitisers.”

“The situation is worrying – especially when you hear of what is going on in the world and the amount that needs to be done in our preparedness here.”

“But I don’t regret working when others are at home because as health workers we are always at the frontline, even in war. It’s my responsibility and I’m happy to help. I call my parents and keep them updated about the situation, as well as how they can prevent themselves. Sometimes I feel cut off from them and wish I could be with them. They call me often and tell me to take maximum care.”
