We cannot deny that we are in uncharted territory, but while we are practicing social distancing, Amal Alliance is as strong as ever. Our core mission of ensuring the wellbeing of displaced and disenfranchised children is needed now more than ever.
During this unfortunate time, we are focusing our efforts to respond to the growing challenges COVID-19 has presented in these underserved communities.
We Are In This Together
This series addresses the needs of children during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing simple, but meaningful activities that reinforce emotional wellbeing. The podcasts give caregivers daily activities to enhance self-resilience and explore possibilities to support themselves and children of all age groups and learning stages. Activities and games are designed to require no materials, and touch on topics such as hygiene, empathy, tolerance, patience, and healthy expression. Distributing organizations can request to join the WhatsApp group by contacting us.
Special thanks to our COVID-19 Response Consortium Partners: Learning in Times of Crisis, Karanga, Qatar Foundation International, and Salzburg Global Seminar.
