As part of its commitment to support the efforts exerted by the Members States to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 pandemic, the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) launched a project to provide technical and financial support to set up small units and train members of the local communities on the production of low-cost sanitizer.
The project aims at raising awareness of the importance of hygiene in reducing the risk of contracting the virus. It is also geared towards promoting the local cottage industry using new and advanced technologies, in return create job opportunities for several communities. This project falls within ICESCO’s efforts to consolidate local capacities to manufacture products proven to help curb the spread of the virus.
At the initial phase of the project, ICESCO works with the competent authorities and partner industry in the Republic of Mali. This will later be replicated in other member state countries to widen the reach and scope of the project based on the needs of the communities.
The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) will continue to closely monitor all developments related to COVID-19 spread in all Member States. The Organization will further provide the most effective means of support complementing each country’s requirements to overcome this crisis and alleviate its social and economic impact.
