The current COVID-19 pandemic has devastated families and communities around the world but is especially dangerous for those who have fled their homes due to violence or conflict, current dwelling in crowded camps or densely packed urban areas. As Pope Francis reminds us, “we are in the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together.”
Assisting the Most Vulnerable
While deep concern for the health and safety of ourselves, family, and loved ones occupy our thoughts during this time, we also need to keep the needs of our community at the forefront of our minds and prayers.
The current COVID-19 crisis does not stop ICMC from protecting vulnerable refugees and migrants. Our field staff currently focus on:
- Educating staff and beneficiaries on the signs and symptoms of the novel Coronavirus and how to prevent its spread;
- Increasing communications to program participants by offering helplines and leveraging social media;
- Gathering and distributing much-needed resources and advocating for the protection of those most at risk.
Supporting the Pandemic Appeal, helps ICMC continue to deliver much-needed services to migrants and refugees.
