World Vision Staff Affected Son Tra and Tien Lu AP: 0
Cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in?Vietnam. The government closed all schools and banned large public gatherings in an effort to contain the spread of the virus. However, small gatherings are permitted and so some child sponsorship activities can continue, while others will be delayed.
World Vision is now focused on planning early recovery activities and will conduct a needs assessment in June. Throughout the crisis, we have shared information on COVID-19 prevention and handwashing and helping children cope with stress in the communities where we work. We have also been working with the government, health workers and police to establish incident reporting mechanisms in quarantine and isolation centres to help protect children and other vulnerable people.
Most WV Vietnam staff are working from home. However, we have worked with our partners to adjust our operations to meet safety guidelines while maximising our programme’s effectiveness.
