CIU Alumnus is part of the COVID-19 Front-liners
Kajjabwangu Ronald is a proud alumnus of Clarke International University. He graduated from CIU in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing Science.
Currently, he works with Amref Health Africa in South Sudan as a Health Trainer/Lecturer and a Researcher.
For COVID-19 response, he is a team leader for COVID-19 infection prevention and control, and water sanitation and hygiene. During this period, he has been facilitating workshops in which he has been conducting training for all health facility workers on COVID-19 IPC/WASH in order to safeguard health faculty workers and the communities from contracting coronaviruses especially as they are working on patients in the future.
He has also been facilitating another training on the rational and appropriate use of personal protective equipment (PPE) among health workers in Maridi and Ibba counties of South Sudan in the Western Equatorial region.
Kajjabwangu’s advice to the general public is to wash hands as frequently as possible with soap and water or use sanitizers. Observe social distancing and avoid unnecessary travel or movements. In addition, observe respiratory etiquette by sneezing into your elbow, or use a tissue and discard appropriately in a bin.
COVID-19 is very real but the good news is together we can overcome it by observing the guidelines given to us by our health care workers.
