I have been developing a Corona Care Relief Project for Africa since March/April when many experts including WHO were all beginning to predict that Africa could become another epicentre for Covid-19 pandemic crisis, which stuck with me ever since and continue to give me sleepless night and concerns. As an African myself who have lots of relatives leaving in Africa and also as someone (Sociologist) who knows how impoverished the continent is coupled with widespread corruption and lack of preparedness to combat the pandemic, I have been troubled and toiling day and night since February to develop a project to help mitigate and contain the impacts and incidences of Covid-19 pandemic in Africa. While I have already developed the business plan substantially, however, lack of financial confidence continues to hamper this project launch.
If anybody knows how best I can go about getting this project off the ground, I would very much appreciate it. I believe very strongly that the project can attract good Crowdfund-raising campaign if it is launched in a very professional way, which was why I have been very reluctant to just kick-start it from nowhere. I need inputs and suggestions on how best to go about 'launching', 'crowdfunding' and building a team of co-founders who are passionate about helping to stop Africa from becoming another epicentre of Covid-19 pandemic crisis.
Since April till date, all the critical predictions about Africa seem more and more inevitable as the cases across the African continent continues to quardrupple every week since the month of April when the confirm cases across Africa rose speedily to over 20,000 and have since been doubling every one week. Today Africa has not yet beating the curve of the first wave and the figure is now over 500,000 confirm positive cases with over 12,000 deaths. Not only is this exponential rise signalling the inevitability of catastrophic lost of human lives but also that more than 50 million extra extreme poor would be added to the continent. Given all these, I still see my project idea very useful to be implemented in the way I have designed it as a not-for-profit social enterprise. Please I need everybody's help urgently!
Feel free to reach out. Happy to see if/how I can help.
