Memwa is 23 year olds and is from Mzimba in the northern region of Malawi. She lives with her parents. Before the pandemic, she went to school and chatted with her friends, as well as doing farming work. She has continued going to the farm but is no longer in school and is not going to church, which she notes as a significant change in her life.

“What I can tell those in charge of the pandemic response is to sensitise the people in my community about the dangers of the Coronavirus since some don’t take it seriously because they say there is no Coronavirus.”
