Contributed by a member of the RISE Community • May 15th, 2020

El brote de enfermedad por coronavirus (COVID-19) ha sido declarado emergencia de salud pública de importancia internacional (ESPII) y el virus se ha propagado a numerosos países y territorios. Aunque el virus que ocasiona el COVID-19 todavía es, en gran parte, desconocido, se sabe que se transmite por el contacto directo con las gotas de la respiración que una persona infectada puede expulsar al toser y estornudar. Además, las personas pueden infectarse al tocar superficies contaminadas con el virus y luego tocarse la cara (por ejemplo, los ojos, la nariz o la boca). Mientras el COVID-19 se siga propagando, es importante que las comunidades tomen medidas para prevenir su transmisión, reducir la repercusión del brote y adoptar medidas de control. Read More

Children’s Voices in the time of COVID-19: Continued child activism in the face of personal challenges

Contributed by a member of the RISE Community • May 13th, 2020

This research was conducted in March and April 2020 to explore children’s and young people’s reflections and perceptions on the COVID-19 outbreak. Children and young people have already started mobilising themselves, using online platforms to share their experiences and support others with information and emotional support. This research on young voices was organised in response to the young people’s continued child activism in the face of personal challenges. We hope that the results will prove useful to other child rights focused organisations as we seek to better understand what children and young people want to do in this time of crisis and how they can be supported, equipped, and encouraged.

Caring for Vulnerable People during COVID-19: Understanding the effects of a pandemic response on Child Maltreatment, Human Trafficking, and IPV (Intimate Partner Violence)

Contributed by a member of the RISE Community • May 13th, 2020

As COVID-19 continues to require physical distancing (also known as social distancing), it is important to understand the effects these conditions are placing on vulnerable people caught in abusive relationships or human trafficking situations, as well as survivors of both. Being able to identify these vulnerable populations in your community, and having an understanding of their unique needs, will enable you to minister and help them. For victims and survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence, the pandemic response may exacerbate or trigger the experiences of exploitation and violence. Individuals in these situations need to understand there is no shame, blame, or guilt for being triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, they need to be reminded they are not alone and there is support and a community of survivors standing with them. They are not forgotten. They are seen. They are not alone. Read More
