In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our clubs are working hard in their communities, creating positivity and compassion in a time where there is much fear and uncertainty. One such club is the Play for Peace Chicago Goode Club, which recently put together a project to bring unity and identity to club members during this trying time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected countless communities of people in countries across the world, and Afghanistan’s Herat Province is no different. In a place where many live hand to mouth, lockdowns have left people without any source of income for food, basic necessities, or places to live.
Every Tuesday and Thursday, our community of Play for Peace trainers and mentors gathers via Zoom to share how their communities are weathering the COVID-19 crisis. They also share tips and techniques for supporting their communities during this unpredictable time.
Now a global pandemic, Covid-19 has affected almost every country in the world, sickening populations of people and overwhelming healthcare systems. While we all must practice social distancing in order to slow the spread and “flatten the curve,” our club in India is still finding ways to create compassion, connection, and community.
