Greetings to everyone from the Ghana Union of Greater Manchester (GUGM) Executive Committee. We firstly, wish to convey our sincere and deepest sympathies to anyone in our community that has lost loved ones recently, and to send well wishes to all those in recovery from coronavirus (Covid-19). The impact of Coronavirus in our community has hit many people very hard disrupting all our lives: at the beginning of the global pandemic, the effects happening now, and affects that will happen in the future.
Since the start of the UK lockdown, GUGM has been continuously keeping in contact with community members, especially the most vulnerable. We are monitoring the spread of the virus by following the UK Government and NHS England national guidelines, in order to keep up to date with the ever-changing situation. The health and safety of our community, staff and volunteers is our highest priority. We have done and are doing as much as we can to support as many people as possible. GUGM recognises the enormous challenges faced by our community and everyone else by having to adapt and change our daily routines to comply with health & safety protocols. We have been busy supporting and informing members through Whatsapp groups and direct calling members that have been at high risk or have underlying health conditions, so we can share regular updates wherever possible.
GUGM has also delivered and shared food and health provisions to the most vulnerable in our community, especially taking care of elder people. We have done this using social/physical distancing to avoid increasing any risks to our community, our staff and volunteers, to maintain as much as possible good health and well-being. As the Government lifts restrictions and we ease out of lockdown, we will inform and update members through our platforms (Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ghanaunionmcr; Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ghanaunionmcr/; Website: https://ghanaunion.org) and other social media including Whatsapp sharing regular updates so we can continue to support everyone. Please keep following the recommendations of your local and national authorities: keep washing your hands, maintain physical distancing to reduce the risk to all people. GUGM thanks the volunteers and everyone in the community for their continued support during the Coronavirus crisis.
If you need support, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07988825643.
