Good morning, good afternoon and good evening.
COVID-19 is the test of our resilience. We know that a lot of people, both young and old, are frightened and anxious.
Community organizations like YMCA can play an important role in communicating accurate information and keeping social bond strong even we are physically apart.
It‘s vitally important that we let young people know that there is a lot they can do to protect their health and that of their families and communities.
At an individual level, that means staying active, eating right, keeping up with their studies. At the community level, it means maintaining good hygiene practices and following physical distancing rules.
Some of you may have set up community programs where young people can deliver groceries or supplies in a safe manner to older people and others at risk.
We also need your help in combating misinformation.It’s vital that young people separate mythfrom facts and follow the advice of their local and national health agencies, their doctors and WHO.
Thank you all for your commitment and support. We are all in this together and we will get through it together.
I thank you.
