YMCA Stands Together

During these difficult times decisions are being made and hardships endured against the backdrop of a rapidly changing circumstances. African YMCAs have taken drastic measures by reaching out to vulnerable communities and providing support in different ways. We continue to stand together through this crisis and together we shall overcome it.

We encourage all of our members and their families to follow health authority advice and do what they can to contribute to the global effort to control this pandemic. Wherever possible practice the key elements of social distancing, social isolation, good hygiene, know the symptoms of COVID-19 disease, and report if you feel unwell and immediately isolate yourself.
