Lent is holy month in which people become closer to their religion, give to charity and help each other’s regardless of religion or belief.
It is also the appropriate moment for Afrivac to launch its annual Lenten fundraising campaign.
Senegalese are usually asked to make a donation that will contribute to a greater immunization coverage and greater access to primary health care for children.
Sensitization and fundraising activities are held in churches throughout the period of Lent.
Raising awareness of the issue of immunization financing done by Afrivac in 2016 and 2017, generated great interest among Senegalese population and allowed Afrivac to mobilize resources for immunization financing.
