Coronavirus Fight Song

Featuring Music sensation SingStar Ali

Music sensation SingStar Ali sings about how persons with disabilities in Rwanda have been particularly impacted by the pandemic. He cites inaccessible washing stations, the inability to social distance, and information on preventative measures not being released in accessible formats as some of the reasons. Despite these challenges, SingStar vows that persons with disabilities will continue to fight and protect themselves against the virus.

This music video was produced by the Umbrella of Organizations of People with Disabilities in the Fight against HIV and AIDS & for Health Promotion (UPHLS), an NGO operating in 30 districts in Rwanda. Their mission is to strengthen the capacities of their member organizations and to promote the rights of persons with disabilities to inclusive services in HIV/AIDS, health, and employability. Their member organizations include the Rwanda National Union of the Deaf (RNUD), the Rwanda Union of the Blind (RUB), and UWEZO (Union of Disabled Youths).
