Award-winning animation brings urgent prevention message
OTTAWA, CANADA, November 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With emergency health crews in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo under near-constant attacks from militants, the country’s local broadcaster will televise one of Chocolate Moose Media’s (CMM) Ebola-prevention videos twice daily to help deal with a months-long outbreak of the disease.
"In Praise of Prevention," with a Swahili voiceover, will be telecast before the 7:30am and 6:30pm news on the broadcaster RTGB/Goma TV. Harper Hill Global will fund the broadcasts.
The animated video was originally produced in response to the West African epidemic in 2014 but the messages are equally applicable to most of sub-Saharan Africa. It is the second in CMM’s three-part, Ebola-prevention series and focuses on a young girl who has lost her brother and who offers advice about to avoid getting and spreading the disease.
“With emergency health crews under attack, it is excellent news to hear that the DRC government will take any step necessary to deal with its current Ebola situation,” says CMM founder Firdaus Kharas.
