When we think of COVID-19, we here at OMPT are keenly worried about the people we serve in the developing world. Reports from some of the poorest countries underscore the lack of access to vital, life-saving knowledge—knowledge as simple as how to wash your hands properly. In places we work like Tanzania, for example, people don’t know what precautions to take. Boiling water and lemon are recommended to ward off the disease, and misinformation is rampant.
This is why, perhaps now more than ever, OMPT’s work is essential.
For developing nations, one of the biggest problems is a lack of information. We can help solve that problem. For over a decade, we have been on the front lines of disease prevention and demonstrative education, providing information to the most remote, off-grid communities around the world.
In particular, our work with the last global viral threat, Ebola, sets us apart as experts in the field of disease prevention. Working hand-in-hand with aid organizations on the front lines, we worked in several countries across Africa to spread awareness, knowledge, and key prevention information through video technology.
Video technology enables aid workers to communicate about the importance of hand-washing and isolation practices by demonstrating important behavior changes to reduce the spread of communicable disease. Using mobile projectors that don’t require electricity or the internet, aid workers can share important instructional videos to help reduce disease in populations who don't have access to information or healthcare systems.
Now is the time where our experience and expertise can make life-altering, impactful change. With your help, we can make a difference during this pandemic.
Join us as we deliver training and technology to people working on the front lines to stop preventable diseases in the developing world.
