The Corona virus and the measures which governments are consequently taking, are impacting lives across the globe. Especially the most vulnerable often feel insecure about how to prevent infection. Isolation and social distancing further fuels feelings of loneliness. We wish you and your loved ones a lot of strength and health during this difficult time.
