Project Report | Jul 19, 2021
the long breath needed in a world wide pandemic

By Andrea Vogt | International Director Operation Mercy

Dear friends 

did you think that you would still be getting mail from me today July 2021, on the topic of COVID 19 relief when you first engaged with us on this topic? 

Often relief situations track on, we know this from wars, but the pandemic is been a special challenge. 

The waves we all experience, that move from one location to the next, it is tiering and wears out. 

In many places we thought we re-started our development work, and then had to slow down again. Move staff once more into a relief project, providing basic needs, as families move deeper and deeper into crisis as labour migration and remittance, are long term out of reach, local business struggle and again and again - they suddenly fear not only for their livelihood but their health, as the virus once more comes back with new infections. 

It is with your help that we can continue to help and hear stories like this one: 

"During our second COVID19 relief food and hygiene distribution in Kazakhstan, the father of one of the little girls we have been helping in our Community Based Rehabilitation project offered to come with us to deliver food to the other families in our project. The bags were very heavy, and we needed help to transport them and then carry them (often up many flights of stairs) to the apartments.

More than just a way of thanking us for our help for his family, this dad helped us do something that we could not do alone. The mutual support benefitted a much broader community!" 

In our annual report 2020, you can read more about all the work done last year, which continues on in 2021. 

On our webpage you also find a study we took part in, on our own crisis management in the crisis. How did we care for our staff and our project partcipants?  

Thanks for your continued and ongoing partnership, only with your help can we have the long breath needed. 

Blessings Andrea Vogt
