During the Coronavirus Outbreak ICC Provides Masks and Ethanol Solutions to Families with Urgent Needs
While the coronavirus continues to spread, masks, ethanol solutions and other protective appliances have become the scarcest resources, and thus families raising children with special needs are feeling the pressure. In order to go out to the shops, access medical services, or for the breadwinner to go to work, the families need masks to leave the house. They also do not have the necessary supplies to sterilize their home environment and belongings. Because of this their health and safety is at risk, and many are feeling very anxious.
Since the outbreak first made news and measures were put in place, the FPP social workers have been regularly connecting with the families, checking on the health and needs of the whole family. Seeing this was the greatest pressure and concern of the families, the social workers and managers of FPP found ways to collect masks and ethanol solutions on the internet since February 3rd, and looked for ways to purchase protective items. Many people were concerned about the needs of these special families, and some volunteers donated ethanol solutions. After a week of hard work, we finally collected 150 masks and bought 40 bottles of ethanol solutions.
On February 10th, our social workers packed up all the supplies and delivered them by express to 10 families with the highest needs.
Seeing the happy smiles of the children and their parents after they received the supplies, we thought all the efforts were worth it!
