In these challenging days, that impact on all of us, please remember those affected by homelessness. They cannot self-isolate, struggle to access online information, and may not be able to wash their hands regularly. Many will be in great danger if they contract COVID-19.
Providence Row has served the most vulnerable people in society since 1860 and, with great sadness and regret, we have now had to temporarily close our Day Centre in East London as the COVID-19 outbreak continues. But our work goes on, and we are in regular contact with our clients to offer support, advice and encouragement. Many are fearful and anxious, unsure of what will happen next and we are determined that none will feel abandoned or alone. Many have made great strides forward in overcoming addictions and traumatic experiences. We are doing our very best to ensure that their progress is sustained, through the coming weeks and months.
I have no doubt that we shall come through the challenges that now face us, and the generosity and kindness of so many good people will be clear to see. Let’s do all we can to ensure the most vulnerable will also be part of the brighter future that awaits us.
We really need your help to continue our work and offer hope and practical support to those with nowhere else to turn.
Please donate through Just Giving. Your contribution is the lifeline that makes all the difference.
