A new initiative to inform and educate minority communities about COVID-19

WICHITA, Kan. (Telemundo Kansas)– A new program known as ‘facts not fear ict’ will take place this Wednesday, January 26 at 6 pm at the Evergreen Recreation Center. The goal of this organization is to be able to inform and provide the necessary tools to the community to limit the spread of the coronavirus and focus on the Hispanic, African-American, Asian and indigenous communities.

“It is the only campaign that is being 100 percent targeted to specific communities,” said health promoter for health plus wellness, Denise Romero.

According to medical experts during the pandemic, minority communities have been the most affected. Suffering high cases of COVID-19, low resources and transportation problems to attend medical clinics.

“Then health plus well-being together with ‘facts not fear ict’ we are making a great effort to be able to make a campaign that is understood, that is understood and that, more than anything, is reliable so that the community accepts the information,” said Romero.

The program will increase the number of mobile clinics in the city and expand the information these communities receive.

“We are aiming for this information to be given today. That this information is up-to-date, that this information is 100 percent true,” Romero said.

He also mentions that several times people do not get vaccinated due to a lack of trust between the government and residents. So they hope to strengthen those relationships.

“I say that this type of initiative is very important and different from any other information that is out there,” Romero said.

Remember that you can come to the evegreen recreation center at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 16 at 6 p.m. to receive the most up-to-date information about the pandemic and the resources available around you.
