OUR COVID-19 WORK IN 2020

WORLD CANCER AWARENESS DAY PROJECT

This was to spread awareness of cancer and provide preventive measures through early detection. The day aimed to raise awareness, improve education, and galvanise action to reduce the devastating impact that cancer has on the BAME community.

THE NO CHILD SHOULD GO HUNGRY PROJECT

This was the Wonderfully Made Woman way to support BAME children during Covid. Items provided were cereal, drinks, pizza, chicken nuggets, and so much more. This project also birthed the Wonderfully Made Woman Back to School project and the Cash for Kids project. Only with all concerted effort can we be sure that children of all classes can emerge from the crisis ready to cope and thrive in the post-Covid-19 world.

THE COVID-19 FOODSTUFF AT YOUR DOORSTEP PROJECT

This was targeted at single mothers, widows, married women with low/no income to help cushion the effect of the pandemic, and support their well-being. The project pioneered the African Foodbank for women in Greater Manchester. The food bank is open on Tuesday and Thursdays, and it currently feeds over 50 women weekly. Here at Wonderfully Made Woman, we pack boxes with a week’s worth of “rations” for a single person, a couple or a family. Our basic package has to be African food which we pack into every spare space.

WEEKLY WELLNESS SESSION

This was launched to support BAME women and girls who have faced hardship both mentally and emotionally during Covid. Mental health plays an essential role in a person’s overall wellbeing. It shows that stress caused by the Coronavirus may be taking a greater toll on women’s mental health than on men, so we designed intimate conversations online where women come together and talk about issues affecting them. These sessions are weekly zoom meetings with women and girls in Greater Manchester, and we have helplines opened from Mondays- Saturdays.

WMW MARKS SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY

...to raise awareness of suicide. We know that a person dies every 40 seconds by suicide. There are also many women and children who have lost loved ones by suicide or have been close to someone who has made an attempt. This World Suicide Prevention Day event encourages us to engage with each other and to join together to spread awareness of suicide prevention.

PIDGIN LANGUAGE COVID PROJECT

...for African Families during Covid-19 was a project were information and infographics about Covid-19, communicated in Pidgin Language for African Families to understand clearly, and take steps to reduce the rate of infection.

MAKE SMOKING HISTORY

Wonderfully Made Woman partnered with History Makers Greater Manchester to make smoking history in Greater Manchester and support women's health, and wellbeing.

FAITH BASED PROJECT
