With this blog post, we want to gi­ve peo­ple from around the world and from dif­fe­rent back­grounds the op­por­tu­ni­ty to tell their per­so­nal sto­ries in ti­mes of the Co­ro­na pan­de­mic. To­day­'s post is from Ad­dis Aba­ba, the ca­pi­tal of Ethi­o­pia. Yo­nas is 35 years old and works in hou­si­ng con­struc­ti­on in this ci­ty with an esti­ma­ted po­pu­la­ti­on of three mil­li­on peo­ple. Yo­nas re­gu­la­r­ly goes to church, and faith is an im­port­ant part of his life. But he­ar for your­self what Yo­nas has to say against the back­ground of the Co­ro­na pan­de­mic:

Why this pro­jec­t?

Be­cau­se the Co­ro­na pan­de­mic has now re­a­ched all the coun­tries of the world and is im­pac­ting the li­ves of the ma­jo­ri­ty of the world’s po­pu­la­ti­o­n, we, two stu­dents of Cu­sa­nus Uni­ver­si­ty, are in­te­res­ted in lear­ning about peo­ple in other pla­ces of the world beyond what the me­dia has co­ver­ed. The aim is to en­ter in­to a so­ci­al­ly re­le­vant di­a­logue at the in­ter­face bet­ween aca­de­mic schol­ar­ship and so­ci­e­ty, and to au­then­ti­cal­ly pro­vi­de dif­fe­rent per­spec­ti­ve­s. With this goal in min­d, we want to ask peo­ple from dif­fe­rent re­gi­ons of the world to of­fer their own in­ter­pre­ta­ti­ons, their own nar­ra­ti­ves of the cur­rent si­tua­ti­o­n. No­te: The in­for­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded here re­pres­ents the in­di­vi­du­al opi­ni­ons and in­di­vi­du­al ex­pe­ri­ences of tho­se per­sons in­ter­view­e­d.
