Jonah House still maintains infection control measures to reduce the risk of the children getting sick collectively after COVID slowed down. Although Jonah House is not open to visitors and volunteers yet, we have held several volunteer trainings in the past two months, which was preparation for restarting volunteering.
We are grateful to the volunteers willing to devote time to accompany our children. During the trainings, everyone was enthusiastic for sharing and discussing. Besides, everyone was willing to follow the voluntary regulations of Cathwel.
We hope we will restart the volunteering for our children in the near future.
It’s summer vacation. The teenagers of Jonah House are staying home most of time because of the dog days. Sometimes, the high temperature is up to around 40 degrees outdoors. Staying indoors can avoid sunburn.
A few weeks ago, the teenagers participated in basketball games and achieved great results. Everyone was very happy.
Recently, we plan to renovate the care space for infants and toddlers and the areas which need to be repaired and painted in the building.
We continue to provide early intervention and rehabilitation for the younger children in Jonah House. Even of the current shortage of manpower, we still try our best to do child work!
It’s a new year. We will keep praying for your safety and health.
Cathwel restarts many projects this year, including connecting more external resources for children's needs and accelerating matching adoptive families for children in need.
Despite of manpower shortage, we have launched a new program in addition to our current service. We extend our service for young people and women who have been cared by Cathwel or inter-country adoptees through Cathwel who return in Taiwan as their lives are still unstable and in need. The original intention of this program is that we have known for a long time that many young people whom we’ve cared or adoptees who returned to Taiwan had difficulty adjusting to life. In the past, Cathwel would provide them emergency assistance, but now we want to do more. At this stage, we are taking the step and accompanying them to create more opportunity.
