Covid 19 Response

WHAT WE NEED

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has chosen to support our students and patients. COVID-19 has officially hit Ethiopia, we are doing our best to protect our students; however, social distancing, hand washing, and precautions along these lines are luxuries that are not easily accomplished in the Ethiopian society. We understand the financial stress this pandemic will impose on everyone, MTG is no exception as our donations are delayed as our economy struggles. Please help us keep our students and patients safe.  We need general funding for housing food and private transportation as our students are not permitted to use public transport at this time.  We need funding for cleaning supplies, soap and alcohol.

COVID 19 Policy

Prevent the Spread

  •  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home and away from people in your house if you have symptoms.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you have no tissue, cough on the inside of your elbow and not your hand.
  • Use cotton balls soaked in purple alcohol on your hands if you cough or sneeze or touch objects that could be touched by others.  Clean your doorknobs and toilet handles with alcohol or bleach. 

Our "NO" policies

  • NO celebrations or meetings with groups of people outside your house.
  • NO going to church until the pandemic is controlled.
  • NO gatherings with people in your house with people that do not live in your house. 
  • NO touching people, kissing people, or hugging people. 
  • NO sharing food on the same plate- each person must have their own plate. 
  • NO riding public transportation.

What to do if you get Ill

If anyone gets ill with a fever or cough, do not assume it is “just a cold” or “allergy". The ill person needs to be isolated from the other people in their house. We will provide medical help to the best of our ability.
