2020 has remarkably been a challenging year with the outburst of Covid-19 pandemic; As the spread has effected virtually every country in the world, MasterPeace African clubs have been actively responsive to act upon the outburst and have organized and have been integrating most Covid-19-related activities in their regular projects, and maintained essential healthcare in their already existing programmes.
The ongoing pandemic demanded from the club leaders to join forces to adjust their programmes and create new ways to best serve children and deprived communities during this time.
The projects planned were often in the form of training in infection prevention and control, health promotion and organization of healthcare services with a specific focus on the (mental) health of the youth.
