Challenge

According to the Center for Disease Control, CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in more than 100 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named "SARS-CoV-2" and the disease it causes has been named "coronavirus disease 2019" (abbreviated "COVID-19").

Solution

SHAPE provides temporary financial assistance for elderly and disabled people and those who have been displaced from their jobs; have difficulty acquiring food and supplies, and lack financial means to combat the threat of the coronavirus. We provide direct goods such as cleaning supplies and disinfectant, water, food, and other items as needed. SHAPE also provides safe, sanitary child care for displaced students.

Long-Term Impact

We will help 100-200 elders, families and individuals get through the coronavirus threat, while also helping them recover mentally from the turmoil caused by the current pandemonium.
