The United Nations Children's Fund South Africa (UNICEF SA) has commissioned Heartlines to develop audio content which focuses on the wellbeing, rights and protection of children during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s important to protect children during this period of isolation from sexual exploitation online and at home. We also provide audio on explaining COVID-19 to parents and children.
This audio content is applicable to parents and caregivers, teenagers, and younger children. The content can be found on UNICEF’s social media platforms, Heartlines’ Sound Cloud channel and community radio station.
Listen to episode 1: Caring for Every Child in a Time of Covid19:
1. Little Hands Matter: Keeping little hands washed is not always possible in rural or under-resourced communities. We need more handwashing stations!
2. 20 Seconds can stop the Spread: Sensitising parents and children on how washing hands for 20 seconds can stop the spread of Corona.
3. Protecting Little Hands Online: A call to action to protect children from sexual exploitation.
