Children’s and Caretakers’ Animation Series on COVID-19
The COVID-19 response under Breakthrough ACTION Cambodia includes a six-episode children’s and caretakers’ animated series aimed at disseminating key COVID-19 messages focused on key behaviors (e.g., handwashing, self-isolation) and prevention of COVID-19.
This was developed in coordination with UNICEF and approved by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS). This first episode aired in May 2020 and was shared through the Facebook pages of the MoEYS, UNICEF and Save the Children, and broadcasted on several local TV channels. It is available in Khmer and sign language.
