Schools and Universities remain closed, but our scholarships continue
Schools and Universities remain closed, but our scholarship participants can continue their studies online. Children from our afterschool project continue to benefit from regular snack deliveries. We also keep in contact with them offering written explanations on lessons and assignments and checking them without personal contact.
All group gatherings are banned, affecting our Christian meetings, soup kitchen gatherings and clubs for the disabled.
The elderly and disabled are especially vulnerable and are we limiting our interaction. We are however, in constant communication by phone or internet with the responsible persons of all Clubs and with those in need of encouragement, comfort, and any help. A special Easter delivery was also made to the disabled in our Elder Care programme, containing food and Christian literature.
Those who attend our soup kitchens in Dupnita and Burgas received foodstuff to last for some time.
Those who are from our other soup kitchens will receive hot meals at home delivered by catering companies. The monthly food parcels deliveries to the sponsored families and Senior Care beneficiaries will continue at the coordinator’s discretion while adhering to strict safety regulations. We were able to deliver seeds from our seeds of hope project before the lockdown.
Through our StreetMercy project, we continue to support the homeless with a meal every day adhering to strict safety regulations.
Our families in our Family Sponsorship program, including the homeless supported by our StreetMercy project, received a facemask, made through a joint effort by staff, people in our programs and volunteers.
All vocational education opportunities, as well as our Bible Correspondence Course, have temporarily been placed on hold.
