Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, many celebrities have dug deep in their minds to find alternative ways and means to help people cope in this time.
Some of these ways mostly include donations, others educate while some entertain.
Here are some of the celebrities who have chosen their ways to help their followers deal with the coronavirus.
Prior to the lockdown, prices of hand sanitisers where so high, many people could not afford it.
Criss Waddle took to his Twitter handle to ask his fans to drop their address so he would deliver hand sanitisers to their homes. He also went to hospitals to deliver some of the sanitisers in person.
When the lockdown was extended Criss Waddle with the help of producer Hammer shared food to about 500 underprivileged people.
When the coronavirus first hit Ghana, rapper Edem was one of the first people who advocated for education on the virus to be done in local languages.
He took the lead by dropping a video about the coronavirus in Ewe his mother tongue. Edem, after a lockdown was imposed, held an ‘Anti Corona Concert to entertain fans who had to be in their respective homes all day.
In the third week of the lockdown, Edem fed 50 security personnel who were enforcing the lockdown breakfast. Later that week, he shared some money for fans on Twitter. In collaboration with FoodTech Limited, he also donated some items to the Lekma Hospital.
Sarkodie may not be in the country now but that did not stop him from feeding some people in Tema while the lockdown was in place.
With the help of his team, the ‘Lucky’ hitmaker donated some foodstuffs to residents of Tema. The Sarkcess team did a door to door delivery while people in other areas also met them on the road for their share of items.
Sarkodie has also been entertaining fans by hosting a battle between DJ’s dubbed BehindTheHitz.
Medikal and Fella Makafui
Celebrity couple Medikal and Fella Makafui extended help to families who were having a hard time feeding themselves amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The couple announced, on their social media handle, that they had bought some sanitary products and food items for people who were cash strapped – hence having difficulty in getting these items for themselves.
They also added money to the wrapped items.
Sister Derby and Wanlov Kubolor
Singer Sister Derby and her brother musician Wanlov Kubolor with the help of some tailors produced some face masks to donate.
They made them from recycled second hand clothes.
Actress Joselyn Dumas has been engaging her fans in challenges to help entertain them while they are stuck in their homes.
But the actress on some occasions took a break from challenges to donate some money to her followers. These beneficiaries were selected randomly.
