The aim of the project is to help people living in the area near the contact line in connection with a coronavirus pandemic.
Our activities include providing the people most in need – the elderly, lonely and disabled people – with hygiene kits. In addition, households with people with severe locomotor disabilities will be equipped with special hygiene kits tailored to their needs. We will provide sets of personal protective equipment for homes with people infected with the COVID-19 virus.
Food prices have risen recently in eastern Ukraine. Many people find it difficult to acquire even the most basic products. That is why we provide food packages to the people in need.
In addition, qualified PAH social workers will provide remote psycho-social assistance to project Beneficiaries. To ensure safety, psycho-social sessions will be conducted via telephone connections and include self-regulation of emotions and relaxation techniques as well as positive strategies for maintaining mental hygiene, as recommended by WHO.
During the distribution of hygiene and food products, PAH will also distribute educational materials developed by the WHO on the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, to increase awareness of the entire local population, PAH will disseminate informational materials
Help will go to 1848 households with older people from higher risk groups in the event of COVID-19 infection.
Educational materials will reach 10,274 people.
