Challenge

As we all face the troubling COVID-19 pandemic we see communities all over the world come together to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Based on the available information and expertise, older people with serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk of experiencing severe symptoms from COVID-19. Older people are presently at a great disadvantage, especially older people who have been neglected or abandoned.

Solution

Your donations will help strengthen the immediate needs of ageing people through RECEWAPEC's Eye Care Center in Bambui. The following emergency relief items will be funded: (1) personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face masks; (2) soap and hand sanitizer; (3) bucket pipes to facilitate regular hand washing; and (4) The printing of COVID-19 prevention information posters and leaflets for dissemination.

Long-Term Impact

This project will support the RECEWAPEC Eye Care Centre which impacts over 5,000 of our elders in Bambiu and surrounding communities. Through our Eye Care Centre we have been able to provide community members with medical, social, and economic support. Visit our website to learn more about our programs and what more can be done!
