Flattening Cape Town's COVID Curve

Personal message

We are raising funds to distribute critical information and much-needed internet access in some of the most high-risk communities in the world for COVID19 infections and mortality (dense, low-income and comparatively very immunocompromised because of TB and HIV infection rates).

Specifically, we could do this immediately in these 16 Cape Town communities (representing approximately 1 Million People) where TooMuchWifi is already operating and actively supporting between 20,000 and 40,000 Customers each month:

Dunoon, Langa, Joe Slovo, Manenberg, Gugulethu, Philippi, Nyanga, Bonteheuwel, Vrygrond, Phoenix, Hangberg, Imizamo Yethu, Khayelitsha, Mfuleni and Mitchells Plain

We seek your help to #FlattenTheCurve of #COVID19 infections through an education campaign targeted at some of the highest density areas and most at-risk communities in Sub-Saharan Africa by promoting effective hygiene practices and critical behavioural changes.

This is especially important early in the infection cycle of this crisis where accurate information can make an impact in slowing the spread of this virus that will affect low-income communities most.

Because of this, we will begin today with the funding we already have from private donors.

For each ZAR 15 donated we can provide three gifts of data to ensure three messages are shared with community members, we are hoping to raise over $20,000 from a mix of funding sources to continue this campaign even when people's attention begins to wane during mandatory quarantines.

By offering a data incentive to read a medically accurate document about infection and contagion prevention and demonstrate mastery through a simple quiz, we can get the right information into the hands of communities that need it most, and ‘flatten the curve.’
