Keeping kids healthy in the age of COVID-19

Life is far from normal right now and the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 makes planning for the future difficult.

Kids are especially vulnerable to the stress and negative mental, emotional and physical health impacts caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, in addition to washing hands frequently, covering coughs, and social distancing, there are lots of ways kids can stay healthy and active during this difficult time.

  1. Move, move, move!
    Dancing and yoga are fun indoor activities that don’t require much space. If you can safely go outside, go for a bike ride, run, walk or hike. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that kids get at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day!  
  2. Get creative
    Write a story, paint or draw, listen to music. Now is a perfect time to learn a new skill such as a new instrument or language. Use your imagination to discover a new, cool side of yourself.
  3. Stay in Touch
    It’s tough being away from friends and family who don’t live with you and it’s normal to feel sad. You’re not alone and chances are the person you miss, misses you right back! If you’re thinking of someone, reach out to them by phone, video-chat, or send them a handwritten letter.  
  4. Help Out
    Whether it’s cleaning up your toys, making your bed, reading to a brother or sister, taking care of your pet, or doing your schoolwork, doing something kind or helpful for someone else can make you feel a lot better. Do not forget even a simple gesture like a hug can show your family you love and appreciate them.

Happy News

During the month of April we successfully distributed household products out of our Emergency Product Fund. We distributed home necessities for several low income families of immigrants.

Our Emergency fund is always ready with stock to supply at least 20 families. It is distributed by emergency usually on calls we receive that same day. The fund includes: bedding, towels, dishes, etc.

This fund is possible thanks to the help of our corporate donors.
