Support for At-Risk Groups During the Pandemic
We have created an initiative connecting volunteers (150 have registered so far, the number is increasing daily) with people at risk.
Due to the current economic downturn caused by COVID-19, many people rely on local food banks in order to secure their daily life. However, many vulnerable people cannot or should not go to the food banks in order to avoid infection. Hence, we have teamed up with the food banks and created a continuous support for people at risk. Our volunteers deliver the much needed supplies to their homes on a regular base. At the moment, we support 15 household and the number is steadily increasing.
In order to reduce the risk of infection, we have set up guidelines and processes to make sure all measures related to pandemic-related hygiene are abided by and direct contact is avoided.
In addition, we are pursuing a partnership with one of Stuttgart's big hospitals to support healthcare workers in their daily chores to reduce their stress level.
