Caritas Freetown organizes monthly community drama sensitization

By Mohamed Konneh

Caritas Freetown has organized monthly Community drama sessions targeting ten communities. These communities include Kroobay, Susan’s Bay, Mountain Cut, Blackhall Road, Portee, Calaba Town, Grafton, Sima Town, Monkey Bush, Waterloo and Goderich. The drama session was done in a bid to provide these communities with information, drawing their attention to access the selected Peripheral Health Units (PHUs) for their healthcare delivery services; depicting also, the health care services that Caritas provide in these medical facilities.

Speaking on the drama Reverend Father Peter Konteh said drama is an art of plays, storytelling and experience sharing for social emotional development, pointing out that health education programs are interpreted through live performance or comedy skit thereby giving more understanding to the audience.

“For example, a drama about the Maternal, and Child Health Week Campaign, ‘Mami en Pikin Welbodi Week campaign’, the mosquito nets mass distribution campaign among others, are skits that are performed during these sessions”.

He said drama will help in the social mobilization process especially a period like this when the country is battling with the corona virus. Father Konteh noted that dramatized messages have proved to be a huge public education mass education tool at communities.
