A group of youths in Cameroon under the name; Local Youth Corner, are making hand sanitizers and giving them out for free as their way of fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

They stated that their hand sanitizers are made to World Health Organization (WHO) standards. The sanitizers are being distributed mostly in Yaoundé, the capital.

The group’s co-ordinator, Achaleke Christian, explained that their- one person, one hand sanitizer campaign was motivated by the increase in prices and the poor quality of hand sanitizers on the market. 

“Our target is to give 5,000 sanitizers and we just started with 1,000,” he stated.

They also emphasized on hand-washing.
