Zero Hunger Ghana launches ‘Kick Corona Out” campaign, providing food and water to deprived communities



Zero Hunger Ghana7

Zero Hunger Ghana (ZHG), founded by Debra-Jane Nelson and fulfilled by some 30 volunteers, is a non-partisan; non-profit civil empowered organization geared towards contributing to achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 in Ghana by reducing food waste and hunger using a proven human centred model.  ZHG is working for a goal that ensures that everyone has access to SafeHealthy and Nutritious Food, narrowing down the United Nations’ 2nd SDG to Ghana where everyone has a role to play in achieving a Zero Hunger World by 2030.

Popularly known for food donations and community sensitization on important issues to mobilized beneficiaries.  Community sensitization is one of the key tools used to empower the community members to enable them drive their own developmental agenda, so it is mandatory for all community outreaches carried out.  During a recent session to a group of children and young adults in Jamestown on COVID 19, teaching them how to wash and keep their hands clean at all times, they complained about not having running water.

There is often water shortage in some pro-poor communities yet it is highly recommended that to keep ourselves safe during this Corona Virus Pandemic, we must wash our hands frequently with soap and running water and also use hand sanitizers. Concerned about the safety and wellbeing of immediate families, friends and the whole Ghana community, this lack of key items is putting vulnerable people in identified communities at high risk.Zero Hunger Ghana10

To “Kick Corona Out”, Zero Hunger Ghana partnered with African Health Now to carry out a Community Outreach on Sunday 5th April 2020 with donations of Drinking Water, Water for domestic use, Soap, Hand Sanitizer, Toilet Roll and Basic Food Items as well as Sensitize the community with reliable information on the virus and how to stay safe.  These donations were highly supported by individuals and small businesses.Zero Hunger Ghana9

“Odododooooo” also known, as Ashiedu Keteke Sub Metro is a rural urban community located in the capital city, Accra.  Even though it is in the heart of the capital city of Ghana, the community is deprived of many essentials and most of the people are illiterates.  Knowing their reaction to news mainly because of lack of/minimal education, it was rendered imperative that information on the pandemic was reemphasised to them. The day started about 10 a.m. with a prayer after which volunteers were assigned to their tasks, such as mobilizers, education team distributors etc…  Social mobilization done and in no time, people of Odododooooo were gathered.Zero Hunger Ghana8

Education on Corona Virus done, social distancing, eating nutrition foods, using tissue when coughing or sneezing, hand washing technics which was also demonstrated and practiced by community members before going for their parcels (Drinking Water, Soap, Hand Sanitiser, Toilet Roll and Basic Food Items). The disabled were not left out.  The team went round to bless them with their gifts as well.  Distribution of potable water for domestic use was deployed by a water tanker, which was embraced by the community members.  Children at “Nshw3naa” (Seaside) were refreshed with bottled juices whilst the adults refilled their gallons, barrels, buckets and pans with the water we provided.Zero Hunger Ghana6

The people of Odododooooo are humorous and fun loving people but at the same time aggressive making it hard to tell which states they are at in any particular time and so there were some misunderstandings, terrible reactions/misbehaviours and thankfully humours.  It all ended at about 4 pm.Zero Hunger Ghana5

Observations show that the people in these communities are in a different world of their own.  They have little idea of what is going on and those that do know frankly do not care!  They are living their lives as normal whilst complaining bitterly about their livelihood been taken away from them.  They are blaming the government for imposing a lock down on them without understanding the reason behind it and even if they have been told, seems like they do not understand the magnitude of the pandemic. Zero Hunger Ghana4

If COVID19 should breakout in such communities, we are in BIG TROUBLE as a nation.  The local government are not delivering enough explicable education and sensitization on this important issue to the grassroots.  Traditional Media also seems missing.  Let’s pray the front liners can subdue the recorded cases and spread.Zero Hunger Ghana1

Zero Hunger Ghana and African Health Now say “together, let’s continue to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the vulnerable in our society.  This community support is within reach.”Zero Hunger Ghana2

The Importance of Emotional Communication in Relationships



Communication in Relationships

A smile on the lips, a gentle touch, crossed arms, or even a mockingly contorted mouth – facial expressions and body language often tell us more about our emotional state than words do. A correct interpretation of emotions is the basis for communication, especially with life partners.

A good couple should always have good communication on an emotional level. This type of communication is the key to preventing possible conflicts and discussions in the relationship.

A psychologist who specializes in relationships and communication on shagle video chatnoticed that many couples today do not support this type of communication between themselves, causing serious problems for each other.

What is emotional communication

This kind of communication is centered on exchanging all of the emotions and feelings shared by a couple. Additionally, empathy is important because it allows each partner in the relationship to put themselves in the other’s shoes.

Emotional communication attaches much more importance to emotional language than to verbal language. Although dialogue is important to the couple, facial expressions and body language are much more important.

What happens when there is no emotional communication in relationships

The relationship may significantly worsen if there are specific issues with emotional communication:

  • One of the partners in the couple could be depressed, sad, or bored. This can lead to problems in the future as one notices that their partner is wrong, but does not know why.
  • In the other case, there is something that bothers one of the sides of the relationship, but they don’t say it and stay silent. Nonverbal language makes the other person feel that something is wrong, which creates distance between partners.

The importance of emotional communication in relationships

Maintaining good emotional communication with your partner is important for several reasons:

  • There will be much less conflict and arguments between partners. You can say things clearly without going to extremes.
  • Each partner has much more empathy for the other. This allows possible conflicts to be resolved better and peacefully.
  • The opportunity to share all emotions and feelings mutually.

How to achieve good emotional communication in relationships

  • It is important to start using different emotional verbs in communication: to love, to cheer, to cry, to empathize.
  • Recriminations should be avoided since they push the other person into a defensive position and raise the risk of future conflicts.
  • When dealing with a problem, it is important that both people want to sit down to solve it. It is better to postpone this conversation than to do it inappropriately. Therefore, it is very important to be able to respect everyone’s personal space.

In the end, verbal and emotional communication in relationships is equally crucial. Above all, each person must establish good communication with themselves, letting go of any unproductive negative thoughts. As a result, it’s critical to keep in close contact with the partner. To gain a first-person understanding of the other person, you should be able to listen to them and put yourself in their situation. In that case, every aspect of the relationship will be significantly improved, and everyone will feel extremely competent in living together as a couple.
