Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA), one of the biggest civil society movements in Africa, presents the “first mini-Barefoot Guide” and the “first in a new Agroecology” series “Surviving COVID-19: The Neglected Remedy”.
The mini-Barefoot Guide offers advice on how people across Africa can deal with COVID-19 and how those in densely populated urban areas or remote rural villages can best survive COVID-19 if they get infected.
“It provides answers that lie in our fields and local markets,” the AFSA said, also noting how you, the reader, “will find out in these pages what COVID-19 really is; why food is the best medicine; what foods to consume more; and what foods to avoid.”
Through the pages of “Surviving COVID-19: The Neglected Remedy”, according to AFSA, readers “will also discover how to obtain and prepare food to maintain its medicinal value. And which local and indigenous plants and traditional preparations provide the best nutrients.” In addition to, “celebrating healthy traditional African diets based on the marvelous gifts from nature, validated and boosted by modern scientific knowledge.”
The series promises to help “turn the tide away from over-processed unhealthy foods produced using harmful chemicals and return to growing and eating a great variety of natural and nutritious foods.”
