The COVID-19 pandemic poses a great danger to humanity, including the indigenous peoples of Africa.
If the spread of the virus is not urgently arrested and is allowed to infect African indigenous communities, the virus may decimate our member communities.
Africa’s Indigenous Peoples are extremely vulnerable to the dreaded virus, owing to a lack of essential resources such as clean water, food, housing, medical supplies and even basic information.
