Children Inspiration COVID-19 Emergency Support

CHILDREN INSPIRATION COVID-19 EMERGENCY SUPPORT

Children Inspiration is a non profit organisation. We are focusing on children and young people that are experiencing disadvantages through poverty, illness, distress, abuse or neglect and any kind of disabilities. We support these children to develop new skills through activities and to ensure they use their potentials to the best of their ability. 

The world health organisation declared COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11, 2020 causing huge impact on people’s lives, families and communities. COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.

The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are high temperature and a new continuous cough. Wash your hands with soap and water often or handsanitizer to reduce the risk of infection.

OUR ORGANISATION WILL BE PROVIDING THE FOLLOWING SUPPORT DURING THIS CRISIS FOR THOSE IN NEED:

Access to food and toiletries for people at risk and their families

The coronavirus pandemic is overwhelming, and one of the most excruciating parts for many people is the is feeling of utter helplessnesin the face of widespread suffering and hardship. Though staying inside and staying healthy are the most crucial ways to stave off this outbreak, Children Inspiration Impact Your World has compiled a Startegies and ways to help those affected by the crisis.

Domestic violence counselling for victims

As the nation grapples with the spread of COVID-19, British are being told to go home and stay there, for their safety and everyone else’s. But for victims and survivors of domestic violence, including children exposed to it, being home may not be a safe option — and the unprecedented stress of the pandemic could breed unsafety in homes where violence may not have been an issue before.

Bereavement counselling for families (which include children)

Coronavirus is unprecedented in our lifetimes and people around the world are mourning a sense of normalcy and routine. Some may also be grieving the loss of a loved one due to COVID-19. Loss, grief and bereavement are difficult and complicated for anyone, but especially so for children – who may be dealing with this for the first time in their young lives.

A lot will depend on the age of your child. “Very young children may be confused about what happened – both with loss and grief. Children under the age of 5 may not understand why they don’t go to school and why their parents are home. In the case of death, they may not really understand what death is or understand that it’s permanent. We need to appreciate that really young children are not only dealing with dramatic changes in their lives, but that they often don’t entirely understand why these changes have occurred or what caused them.”

Counselling for the children of domestic violence victims

Many children exposed to violence in the home are also victims of physical abuse.1 Children who witness domestic violence or are victims of abuse themselves are at serious risk for long-term physical and mental health problems.2 Children who witness violence between parents may also be at greater risk of being violent in their future relationships. If you are a parent who is experiencing abuse, it can be difficult to know how to protect your child.
