girl with COVID 19 book in Afghanistan
Hi dear friends of Operation Mercy,
I wanted to give you a quick update on our COVID 19 response project.
I have fantastic news that we received a gift from an institutional donor outside of GlobalGiving so i could adjust down our budget here! But there are still enormous needs out there.
Several of our teams have started on small scale to help those most vulnerable with food and hygiene packages. For many of our project participants this crisis literally has robbed them of the daily bread and soap.
The children's book our team in Afghanistan put together is a great success, several other international organisations including UNOCHA are asking to use it and have posted about it on their facebook page :-) I am so excited that this tool is been used to inform children and adults about the virus and illness it causes.
The team is now working on book #2 which will give information on quarantine and how to live with it, why it is needed and how to support each other.
The needs out there in our communities are huge please share this project withy our friends and family.
