COVID-19 is truly a global pandemic; it’s unlikely that any community will escape its impact. But communities in the Global South will feel its brunt more severely – the lockdown is causing hunger and hardship across Kenya, Nigeria and India.
From Thailand to Columbia, Lesotho to Nepal, Misean Cara is supporting its members to respond to the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The response to this pandemic is only as strong as the weakest link; we at Misean Cara stand together with our members in our commitment to help those in need in the Global South. We are supporting members to help protect their communities: sewing masks, setting up hand-washing points, sourcing Personal Protective Equipment and distributing food parcels along with medication to those in need where possible.
Misean Cara is also focusing on those who are hardest to reach, supporting health care and humanitarian provision – this means targeting, for example, people living in refugees camps,as well as the elderly and people who have disabilities; those who are likely to be worst affected by the COVID-19 virus.
We are highlighting Misean Cara members’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic, showcasing the extraordinary lengths that missionaries are going to uphold the dignity and welfare of communities in need.
