With death tolls mounting, hospitals overflowing, unemployment skyrocketing, and much of the population confined to their homes, there is no shortage of people in need. But who should you help during the coronavirus pandemic? Where are the efforts best spent in order to do the most good?
Help Asian communities
The Asian community have been among the hardest hit by the demand slump caused by COVID-19.
Asian businesses have been hit hardest
Every business is suffering, but Asian-owned businesses are among the worst affected by the novel coronavirus.
Asian communities are grappling with racism caused by coronavirus conspiracies, as well as the stress of the pandemic. They are facing more adversity than the average community during this global crisis.
Small community non-profits are being overlooked for big multinational NGOs. Despite coronavirus occupying the concerns of many communities, other issues such as domestic violence, hunger, and mental health are still endemic.
The homeless often have underlying medical problems
The homeless population often have underlying medical conditions which make them particularly vulnerable in the event they contract the disease. Extra care must be taken in preventing an outbreak within these communities.
