SPRING 2020 NEWSLETTER
Empowering Youth Through Education!
Dear friends of HUGGS,
We are truly in unprecedented times, worrying about our health, families, friends, colleagues and communities. In the face of all this, we are thankful for the HUGGS community joining together to show courage and determination despite these challenges, just as we see our HUGGS students do every day.
As you may have read in a recent email from my fellow board member, Nargis Abraham, we are keeping in close contact with HUGGS staff and students in India, which is currently in lockdown. While home visits have been suspended and the study center is closed, we continue to communicate with the students and staff via WhatsApp. Rations continue to be provided, including the addition of hand sanitizer, and measures have been implemented to ensure rations are handed out while maintaining social distancing measures. We will continue to provide any relevant updates via our website as the weeks go by.
On a more personal note, as a registered nurse in the emergency department, I have been blown away the way our communities have come together to support each other. I still tear up every evening at 7pm as people cheer from their windows and balconies for the front line workers.
On behalf of the whole HUGGS team, I thank you all, not only for your continued generosity and support, but also for continuing to lift each other up and connect, despite the isolation. If you do have any questions or concerns, you can still contact us at email@example.com or +1 (604) 988-4898. We hope you and your families remain healthy and safe. Keep up with the social distancing, hand washing, and looking out for each other, and together, we will make it through!
