The past months have brought many challenges:
- for health-care workers, providing care in difficult circumstances, going to work fearful of bringing COVID-19 home with them;
- for students, adapting to taking classes from home, with little contact with teachers and friends, and anxious about their futures;
- for workers whose livelihoods are threatened;
- for the vast number of people caught in poverty or in fragile humanitarian settings with extremely limited protection from COVID-19;
- and for people with mental health conditions, many experiencing even greater social isolation than before.
And this is to say nothing of managing the grief of losing a loved one, sometimes without being able to say goodbye.
