According to the Finnish Red Cross’ survey, the majority of food aid customers feel they cannot survive without the service. The need for food aid has increased during the coronavirus pandemic. People should not be forced to rely on charity to receive help.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us are spending more time at home than usual, including during our leisure time. What’s more, we have had to reduce the amount of contact we have, particularly face-to-face, with our elderly friends and family. Now more than ever it is important to take care of each other and look after both our own safety and that of others. About 90% of fatal accidents and 80% of accidents that lead to injuries occur at home and during leisure time.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Finnish Red Cross and the Norwegian Red Cross opened a coronavirus treatment centre, providing free care to all, in the Yemeni city of Aden on 20 September in collaboration with the Yemen Red Crescent Society. The new centre helps prepare for a second wave of the virus in the country. Yemen is suffering from the severest humanitarian crisis in the world right now, and less than half of the country’s healthcare services are operating.
