Six pieces of graffiti were made in Kenya and all served the
purpose of public health messages. They include messages like “wash your hands,”
“corona is real” alongside caricatures of the virus. Most of these pieces have
been made with captions using local slang.
This is all part of a campaign started by two graffiti
artists who wish to battle misinformation about the virus in Kenya. It also
educates the public on how they can protect themselves from the virus by practicing
social distancing, washing their hands and using online payment methods instead
of cash. The team also includes residents of the area who have been hired. The
project, however, is self-funded.
With the number of cases of Covid-19 reaching 300 in Kenya, this campaign is helping to curb the spread of the virus.
