Prayers for the World – COVID-19 x Abule Ado Explosion

Prayers for the World –

COVID-19 x Abule Ado Explosion

Good Afternoon,

It may seem as though so many things are happening at the same time all over the world. Our hearts are with everyone as we are all involved. This is an uncertain time and this time will pass.

Our very own YDTeamers are all working hard to ensure we keep giving our clients and you the service you know but we’re making decisions and acting as we gain new facts and if need be we may have to work from home.

So, I think it’s important to share some tips to prevent against the coronavirus;

  • wash your hands regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds
  • use alcohol-based hand sanitizers
  • disinfect touched areas
  • keep a distance from sick people or if you are sick
  • practice respiratory hygiene

Our deepest love also goes to the families involved in the Abule-Ado explosion. May the souls of the departed rest in peace.

We at YD Agency are being responsible and are taking all necessary measures to keep safe, and for this reason, we may have to reschedule some of our upcoming events indefinitely as we are in talks with our clients at the moment and we will surely keep everyone updated as situations unfold.

Stay safe everyone, act with kindness and continue to Stay Calm.
