The Centre for National Culture in the Bono Region has started a campaign using the Arts to promote safety in this era of Covid-19.

The campaign which is sponsored by the Bono Regional Coordinating will see the Center taking it to rural communities to educate them about the pandemic if it gets the necessary support.

Speaking at the launch, the Regional Director of the Centre, Helen Akanbon, urged District Assemblies to take advantage of the show to raise awareness about the dangers of Corvid-19 in the rural areas.

The Centre for National Culture exists to champion and promote Ghana’s Cultural heritage and all that goes with it. As its contribution to the fight against Covid-19, it has put together a programme that uses entertainment to create more awareness about Covid-19 and how to prevent it. The Programme consisted of Drum language, Choral Music and a Drama piece that sought to discourage stigmatisation of Covid-19 sufferers and dispel untruths about the disease as well as make people understand the need to adhere to all the preventive measures.

Earlier in a welcome address, the Bono Regional Director of the CNC, Helen Akanbon, called for support from Municipal and District Assemblies, NGOs and others with the means to help the CNC take the educative programme to communities around the Region.

The Bono Regional Health Promotion Officer, Ama Gyankumah Asrifi, who witnessed the show, described it as fantastic for awareness in rural areas.
