RNV, YNAG, MVMF Launch “OSUN Beats COVID19” Initiative
- Youth Led Organisations to crowdfund resources to provide palliatives for vulnerable citizens

The Coronavirus Disease (COVID 19) pandemic has caused unprecedented disruption to human activities across the globe. Nations and international agencies are formulating measures to combat these changes, curtail the spread of the virus and proffer solutions to issues emerging from the disease.
In Nigeria, the Federal Government has been compelled by the severity of the spread of the disease to take the drastic measure of temporary lockdown across certain states of the federation. State governments have also commenced efforts to enforce the lockdown. Unfortunately, this decision, although necessary, has negatively impacted on the livelihood of millions of Nigerians, majority of whom depend on daily engagements for their financial sustenance.
Understanding the economic hardship resulting from the lockdown and the role of civil society in rising to the challenges of the day and of the people they seek to serve, Raising New Voices Initiative, My Voice My Future and YNAG will be collaborating on an initiative to provide palliative measures to combat the harsh effects of the lockdown in Osun State, Nigeria.
This initiative tagged “Osun beats Covid 19” will be implemented by the New Voices Citizens Fellows in the State and will be focusing on providing relief materials and protective equipment for vulnerable residents of Osun State with a focus on youth and women.
Osun State is grappling with various challenges such as fiscal sustainability and poor infrastructure. The citizens of the State will need the support of everyone to cushion the adverse effects that Covid 19 has on the people of the state.
We call on all Nigerians, at home and in diaspora to support us on this journey by donating to this noble cause via bit.ly/osunbeatscovid19 or to the Raising New Voices Zenith Bank Account: 1015844041.
May God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
