Covid Care Bags Distributed in Rural Villages
As part of the KWC Covid19 Response Plan, staff and volunteers packed and distributed Covid Personal Care Bags for Women and Men residing in the rural communities in the Ards Peninsula. We worked with our colleagues in the County Down Rural Network to ensure we targeted and identified isolated and those most in need. Each bag contained items to support the personal care for each person for a month, including:
- Toothbrush & Toothpaste
- Shower Gel
- Bubble Bath
- Shampoo & Conditioner
- Razors & Shave Gel (for men).
- Face Wipes, Face Mask & Micleor Water (for women)
- Hand Cream
- Sanitising Hand Gel
- Toilet Roll
As many of the events and classes we have usually held for the older members of the rural community have been cancelled, we included tea bags to remind them they are still in our thoughts, and that we will be getting together for a proper cuppa as soon as it is safe to bring everyone together. We hope to be able to stretch our funds for a special Christmas Bag for each of these clients to let them know they are not facing the COVID crisis alone. If you are aware of a vulneable person who could benefit from support please contact Alison or Kirsty on 02891478292.
