Sr Stan has appealed for support for Focus Ireland as a video of a child teaching other children how to avoid Covid-19 gained traction online. The video of the child who is homeless demonstrating how washing hands kills the virus has over 20,000 views across social media.
Sr Stan said: “This crisis is additional stress for families who are homeless and we are working hard to support and protect them in their hour of need. Our staff are supporting parents and ensuring they are getting meals and helping them to deal with anxieties”.
It is a lot more difficult for people who are homeless to self-isolate said a Focus Ireland spokesperson, “especially if are staying in a shared living space”.
