FAQs: How Does The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Affect Child Sponsorship

 

Is my sponsored child still benefitting from child sponsorship during COVID-19?

In each community where we work, World Vision staff and volunteers are closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and are already adjusting our programmes to respond to the changing needs. There are three different scenarios for the 54 countries where sponsored children live:

  1. Our child sponsorship programmes are operating as usual and responding. In these communities, we are focused on preventing the spread of the virus, and mitigating its effects. We are also working with health authorities to spread accurate information about COVID-19 to our community partners.
  2. Our child sponsorship programmes are operating, but with some restrictions. In these communities, we have paused some of our activities to limit close contact between children and other people, but our work continues in COVID-safe ways as we respond to the current needs.
  3. Our child sponsorship programmes are on hold and an emergency response is underway. Staff and volunteers are focused on keeping the children we serve safe. This may include providing school materials to assist with home learning if schools are closed, sharing COVID-19 prevention messages and hygiene supplies like soap and sanitiser, or monitoring children’s health and well-being through regular phone calls or online chats.
 

What happens if my child becomes seriously ill from COVID-19?

The safety and wellbeing of the children we serve is our highest priority. If your sponsored child becomes seriously ill from COVID-19 or any other illness, we will contact you with known information as soon as it’s operationally possible.

 

What happens if my child loses a parent or caregiver because of COVID-19?

We know from experience in the Ebola crisis and other disease outbreaks, that the secondary impacts of COVID-19 can be devastating for children living in poverty, especially losing a parent or older caregiver. If your sponsored child loses a parent/caregiver to COVID-19 or any other illness, we will contact you with known information as soon as it’s operationally possible.

 

Can I still write a letter to my sponsored child?

Yes. In fact, we hope you will! Due to the temporary suspension of international mail by Pos Malaysia, we recommend sending an e-Letter via the My World Vision portal or through [email protected]

In such uncertain times, your sponsored child or their family could be facing fear, isolation or uncertainty and they could benefit from knowing you are thinking of and/or praying for them. In almost all countries, mail services are still operational. In impacted areas, it may take longer for your letter to be delivered but rest assured that it will, as soon as it’s safe to do so. If international mail restrictions are placed on any countries where we work, we will provide immediate updates.

 

If I write a letter to my sponsored child, will I get a reply?

Yes. If your sponsored child is not in an area where our programme work has been restricted by COVID-19, you will receive a reply from them in the usual timeframe. However, if your sponsored child is in an area with restrictions, it may take longer than usual to get a reply. As soon as it’s safe to do so, a reply will be sent. If international mail restrictions are placed on any countries where we work, we will provide you updates.

 

Will I still receive an Annual Progress Report from my sponsored child?

Most sponsors will receive an annual progress report before the end of the year and many will receive an updated photo from their sponsored child. However, restrictions in some areas mean that a small number of sponsors will not receive annual progress reports and updated photos this year. We keep you updated as more information becomes available.

 

 

COVID-19 Country Updates (as of November 2020)

 

Cambodia

In Cambodia, 7% of our child sponsorship communities are currently working under partial restrictions resulting from COVID-19 and 93% are able to work without restrictions.

The country of Cambodia has confirmed 292 cases of COVID-19 with no deaths (as of 4 November 2020). In response, the government closed schools, banned public gatherings of more than 50 people, suspended public transport, and closed land borders with Thailand and Vietnam. Restrictions are easing and schools began reopening in August.

World Vision has reached 912,000 people with our response so far, including 110,000 sponsored children in 43 areas. We are working to limit the spread of the virus and strengthen health systems by sharing prevention messages, providing households with hygiene supplies like soap, training community health workers, and supplying health workers with personal protective equipment like masks and gloves. We are now focused on protecting children from the secondary effects of the pandemic. To strengthen food security and livelihoods, we are providing food and cash to the most vulnerable households and helping parents to learn new skills to increase their family income. We are helping children to continue their education with home learning materials and preparations for schools reopening. We are also collaborating with the government and other community organisations to strengthen child protection in communities where we work. We are continuing to help children and their communities stay healthy with ongoing health and water, sanitation and hygiene projects, including COVID-19 prevention activities.

Democratic Republic of Congo

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, 100% of our child sponsorship communities are now able to work without restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

There are now 11,394 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with 308 deaths (as of 4 November 2020).

The government imposed a national lockdown, suspending flights, closing education facilities, places of worship, restaurants and sports facilities and banning public gatherings in March. Restrictions are now lifted and schools have reopened, though masks are required in public. Many people are very vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19, which compounds the challenges caused by chronic poverty, food insecurity and conflict, as well as other health crises, including the worst measles outbreak in DR Congo history and the world’s second largest Ebola outbreak.

World Vision aims to reach 1.9 million people, including 159,000 children, with our COVID-19 response. We are working to stop the spread of the virus by sharing prevention messages through radio, SMS, phone calls, community visits and faith leaders, as well as providing access to clean water for handwashing. We are supporting local health systems by training community health workers, providing personal protective equipment for health workers, supporting case monitoring and management at health facilities, and providing psychosocial support.

Indonesia

In Indonesia, 7% of our child sponsorship communities are currently working under significant restrictions, 75% are working under partial restrictions and 18% are able to work without restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

Indonesia has confirmed 415,402 cases of COVID-19 and 14,044 deaths (as of 4 November 2020).

The government declared an emergency, appointing provincial task forces, imposing travel bans, closing schools and non-essential business, and banning public gatherings. Most restrictions have been eased since June and schools are reopening in shifts, though Jakarta returned to full restrictions from September to mid-October to contain another outbreak.

World Vision aims to reach 550,000 people, including 180,000 children and 76,000 sponsored children, with our response.

Lebanon

In Lebanon, 100% of our child sponsorship communities are currently working under partial restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

Lebanon has confirmed 83,697 COVID-19 cases and 652 deaths (as of 4 November 2020).

The government launched a COVID-19 National Response Plan, with restrictions introduced at the end of July banning public gatherings and closing many businesses in response to a spike in cases. Most businesses were allowed to reopen in September, though a curfew and limits on numbers at public gatherings are still in place. The Beirut port explosion that left 300,000 people without homes and damaged 15 medical facilities has put extra strain on the country’s ability to cope with COVID-19. Many families struggle to meet their children’s daily needs.

World Vision aims to reach more than 1.1 million people with our response, including 630,000 children, while also transitioning to programming that integrates longer-term recovery activities that respond to the worsening economic challenges and the Syrian refugee crisis. We are supporting children impacted by COVID-19 by promoting stress management and positive parenting through online channels and partnerships with faith leaders, distributing educational kits to children, training community workers and volunteers on psychosocial first aid and child protection, distributing food packages and cash to the most vulnerable families, and supporting households to rebuild their livelihoods with income generating activities. We are also advocating for the government and other humanitarian responders to prioritise child well-being and protection within the national COVID-19 response.

Thank you for your support as we continue to help children and their families face the challenges of COVID-19.  Kindly be informed that gifts and letters sent to sponsored children in Lebanon since February 2020 have not been delivered as the field staff are focusing their efforts on relief work. Please be assured that your gifts and letters will be delivered to your sponsored children as soon as it is safe to do so.

Matelile Area Programme

 

Malaysia

Communities in the Tulid and Tatalaan Community Development Programmes (CDP) are complying with nationwide guidelines by restricting travel in and out of villages. Wholesalers have stopped entering villages to collect cash crops, which has prevented communities in Tulid from earning income. Communities in Tatalaan also face great difficulties, as villages there are remote and far from essential services like healthcare and communication, and children do not have access to online learning.

Through an ongoing local appeal, World Vision is seeking to help the vulnerable in Malaysia – unaccompanied and separated children, migrant families, refugees, and rural communities. To date, more than 1,000 children and families have been provided with relief items such as staple food (rice, flour, eggs, cooking oil and nutrition beverages) and personal hygiene items (soap, detergent and sanitary pads).

In May 2020, WVM conducted an assessment with 40 key community representatives to determine the priority needs of Tulid and Tatalaan communities. Based on the findings, a programme was designed to address those needs. Activities in the programme are geared towards limiting the spread of COVID-19 and reducing its impact on vulnerable children and families in Tulid and Tatalaan; measures include scaling up preventive measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, helping children impacted by COVID-19 through education, child protection, food and livelihood support, as well as collaborating and advocating with decisionmakers to ensure children are protected.

World Vision Malaysia has been supporting communities by sharing Information, Education and Communication materials on preventive measures, important contact information, ‘mythbusters’ and child protection guidelines. We have also delivered 25,000 masks and 100 litres of hand sanitizer for healthcare workers and community use to two rural clinics, which serve the sub-districts where our CDPs are located.

Mongolia

In Mongolia, 100% of our child sponsorship communities are currently working under significant restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

There are 349 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and no deaths in Mongolia (as of 4 November 2020).

In January, the government restricted travellers arriving through international ports and between provinces, closed schools, and banned children from public places, extending the measures until September. The border remains closed to foreigners, though most other restrictions have been lifted and schools reopened in September.

World Vision aims to reach 93,000 children and 38,000 adults with our response, as well as one million people with information. We are working to limit the spread of the virus by sharing prevention messages through comics, cartoons and handwashing videos. We are helping to sanitise schools, kindergartens and dormitories, providing border inspectors and government health workers with personal protective equipment; and renovating school sanitation and hygiene facilities. We are supporting families impacted by COVID-19 by providing cash, food, clothing and hygiene supplies; we are developing and distributing home learning materials for children to access educational materials. In partnership with the government, we launched a television and social media campaign on COVID-19 prevention and child protection, and produced information sheets for parents on positive discipline, stress management and quality time with children. We are also collaborating with other organisations to coordinate our response.

The government ordered people to stay home and avoid travel between villages, imposed a curfew from 10pm to 4am daily, and banned public gatherings. New bans on gatherings were introduced in August and the night curfew was extended. With a large population of displaced people, many people are unable to access healthcare and other services, making Myanmar highly vulnerable to COVID-19.

World Vision aims to reach 715,000 people, including 150,000 children and 70,000 sponsored children, with our response. We are working to limit the spread of COVID-19 by sharing prevention messages through information sessions and materials, training community volunteers and faith leaders to raise awareness about COVID-19 prevention and provide psychosocial support, providing families with hygiene and protective equipment like masks, soap and buckets; and building and maintaining handwashing stations in communities. We are strengthening local health systems by providing medical facilities with medical equipment and personal protective equipment like gloves and masks, and supporting quarantine centres with food supplies, water access, sanitation facilities, cleaning and safe transport of patients and testing specimens.

We are supporting families impacted by COVID-19 by providing food packages for vulnerable children, providing agriculture inputs like seeds and fertiliser, and connecting caregivers to financial services and markets to help them rebuild or diversify their livelihoods. We are developing and distributing home learning materials for children and home school training for caregivers, while advocating for and supporting community management of child protection. We are also working with the government and other organisations to coordinate the national response.

Nepal

In Nepal, 100% of our child sponsorship communities are currently working under significant restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

In Nepal, there are 176,500 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 984 deaths (as of 4 November 2020).

The government closed all non-essential operations and schools, banned public gatherings, suspended all domestic and international flights and long-distance public transport, and closed its borders. Many restrictions were lifted in mid-July but a full lockdown was put in place in the Kathmandu Valley in mid-August. Restrictions eased again in September but the borders remain closed. The impact of COVID-19 on the country is high – many people have lost their jobs and income; seasonal flooding and landslides are compounding the challenges.

World Vision has already reached 400,000 adults and 333,000 children in all 23 areas with sponsored children through our response, and 600,000 people indirectly. As we continue our COVID-19 response, we are now integrating recovery activities focused on children’s nutrition, health, education and protection into our programming. We are working to limit the spread of the virus by developing and disseminating prevention messages through radio and animated videos for TV and social media, providing hygiene kits for families, and installing handwashing facilities at schools and quarantine centres. We are strengthening local health systems by providing personal protective equipment and supplies like disinfectant and thermometers, installing handwashing facilities at health posts, and providing isolation and quarantine centres with hygiene supplies.

We are supporting children impacted by COVID-19 by broadcasting remote learning programmes on radio and TV, strengthening child protection services, collaborating with a specialist organisation to provide psychosocial support, and providing vulnerable families with nutrient supplements, food support, cash vouchers, agricultural tools and inputs. We are also collaborating with government and other organisations to coordinate the national response.

 

 

Philippines

In the Philippines, 72% of our child sponsorship communities are currently working under partial restrictions resulting from COVID-19 and 28% are able to work without restrictions.

The Philippines has been hard hit by COVID-19, recording 385,400 confirmed cases and 7,269 deaths (as of 4 November 2020). The government imposed restrictions to contain the spread of the virus, including business, transportation and school closures. Restrictions remain tight in some areas but have been eased in others.

World Vision aims to reach two million people with our response. We are working to contain the spread of the virus by distributing sanitation kits, building more handwashing facilities, and raising awareness about COVID-19 prevention through partnerships and campaigns on radio, print, television and social media. We are also strengthening local health systems and workers by providing health centres with disinfectant kits, tents for treatment areas, personal protective equipment like masks and gloves, and information materials on COVID-19.

South Africa

In South Africa, 100% of our child sponsorship communities are currently working under partial restrictions resulting from COVID-19.

727,595 cases of COVID-19 and 19,465 deaths have been confirmed in South Africa (as of 4 November 2020).

The government imposed a national lockdown except for essential services. Restrictions were eased and phased reopening of schools began in June, but bans on movement between provinces have been reintroduced and schools were again closed from the end of July to the end of August. The alert level was lowered to level 1 at the end of September so most restrictions have been lifted. Because South Africa has high levels of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, many people are at high risk from COVID-19, while South Africa’s health system has limited capacity.

World Vision aims to reach 1.2 million people with our response, including 480,000 children in all areas with sponsored children. We are working to stop the spread of COVID-19 by sharing prevention messages through print materials and networks of faith leaders and community leaders. We have also broadcast a radio programme about COVID-19, child protection, positive parenting and gender-based violence prevention on 10 radio stations. We are supporting the local health system by providing health workers and volunteers with personal protective equipment, and advocating for stronger child protection and gender-based violence referral systems. We are also supporting vulnerable children with homework clubs to help them catch up on lost learning, psychosocial support activities, as well as hygiene packs and emergency food supplies for the most vulnerable children.
