How Covid-19 Affects Us
Many of our activities involve reaching out and other physical engagements. However, this has been affected by Covid-19, as we can no longer move freely and organise events owing to the restrictions the government has put out. This impedes our activities and programs, as we have had to suspend some of our programs for the year. The pandemic has caused many things to remain virtual, thereby causing our management to re-strategise and put some things on hold. We have been unable to physically reach out to families or organise training sessions for families that intend to support and care for children.
The pandemic has affected a lot of things and changed the way we operate and view several activities. Pending the period the virus lasts, we are working on different strategies through which we can keep the community engaged and also ensure adequate support for the children and young people. This will help us further our commitment to the growth of the community and ensure that we serve the needs of the vulnerable members irrespective of the virus. We want to ensure that members of the community have access to adequate care and get all the support they need to live a healthy life.
Our goal remains to provide care and support to the most affected members of the community. We connect members to the families that can take them in and provide support both educationally and emotionally. This is crucial to ensuring that the community is not filled with broken people. We carry out background checks on the families we connect children to, and we constantly check up on the children to ensure they are getting the best care. We are working on several programs to launch once the pandemic subsides through which we will further on our objectives. While the virus persists, it is crucial that you stay safe and maintain social distancing. Here’s what you should know about the virus.
Aged people are at a higher risk of getting the virus. Statistically, they rank among people with the lowest chances of recovery. This is because their body, being less energetic as before, is at a prone position and is not so capable of handling health issues it could have dispatched easily.
The aged and people living with disabilities are also more vulnerable because there is a lower chance that they will have access to the care that they used to get. This stems from the fact that hospitals have to check spread in their facility by keeping vulnerable people away from infectious diseases as much as possible. A noteworthy implication is shorter exercise routines to prevent exposure. This makes it essential to ensure you stay safe and stop the spread. This will help to keep the next person safe, and consequently, the general community.
There are also symptoms through which you can identify the virus. This includes coughing, sneezing, fever, and having short breath. If you are feeling a multiple of these symptoms, you should get a test done. This will help to determine whether you have caught the virus or not. If you have also recently travelled, it is essential to get a test done to be sure whether you’re free from the virus. You should also stay in isolation. More importantly, ensure you abide by the regulations of the government on the virus.
