In this global crisis, so much is under threat. It is not just about the risk to our health, our lives, and that of our loved ones. It is also about what this is doing to the world we live in. Society is changing. People have lost their income, children are not able to attend school, seniors are in homes and unable to see loved ones. The world is struggling economically and people are in isolation and scared. People are having to manage as best they can. But those in communities that were already disadvantaged and vulnerable are being hit harder than anyone else. We are focusing on helping them with our Coronavirus appeal. |
The impact of the virus goes beyond the deaths
Those who are vulnerable include close living communities around the world, the sick and elderly, those who are affected by poverty, children, and the mentally ill. Camps, cities, slum areas are hit harder than elsewhere. Places that cannot get running water and soap to wash their hands, do not have masks and gloves, cannot keep their distance, have no jobs, or even do have jobs and have to put themselves at risk daily for low-income work. First world, second world and third world countries all have communities that are affected. Children are hungry because schools are closed, parents cannot pay their rent or bills and the future is feeling dark.
This emergency is not just for governments to fix
There is no wand or measure any one government can wave or pass to fix this. While across the world doctors work on a vaccine, those of us who believe in staying connected and helping one another will step up to help individuals and communities who need it. But the only way we can achieve that is with the money you donate to Save the Children Project Coronavirus appeal. If you saw your elderly neighbour was starving and alone would you step up? Get them some groceries, chat with them on the phone, connect them to their family? Donating is helping a neighbour. It is doing the socially responsible thing to do right now. The more we take steps like that the more people we can save.
