As he grapples with his 4WD Landcruiser across a rugged deep trench in Bidibidi, through his mask, Musa Rothomio, a World Vision Driver, speaks of how dramatic life and his job have been since the outbreak of COVID-19. He says he has not seen his family since January, because of the nature of his job.  Restrictions on movement across the country, have made it difficult for him to see his pregnant wife, and daughter.

Musa works with the World Vision Food Assistance Team in Bidibidi Refugee Settlement. The team had to stay on ground and distribute food to the refugees, throughout the lockdown period.

“Food is a key necessity and I needed to stay and support the team, so that we continue feeding these vulnerable communities,” Musa says.
