Standing in solidarity with carers

- Advertisement -
ESTABLISHED in 2012, Carers Worldwide is the only organisation working strategically in low and middle-income countries with unpaid family carers – those unsung heroes who provide care for a sick or disabled relative.

Carers Worldwide give unrecognised carers a voice and implement measures to ensure the emotional, physical, social and economic needs of carers are met. Working with 10 local NGO partners, their current project activities span across India, Nepal and Bangladesh.

On Friday 22nd May 2020 Carers Worldwide took part in ‘The Global Day of Solidarity’. The purpose of the day was to recognise that COVID-19 is a global threat that needs a shared global response. Everyone, everywhere, needs to be protected from COVID-19 to ensure that no one is left behind.

Joining forces with other people and organisations all over the world, Carers Worldwide took part in the day by encouraging their staff, trustees, partner staff, and carers in India, Nepal and Bangladesh to show solidarity with carers everywhere by taking a photograph whilst holding a sign with the message ‘I stand with carers #StrongerTogether.’

The response they received from this request was fantastic – every single one of their 10 partner organisations got involved, with over 70 people in total being in photographs! Over the course of the day, all the photos they received were shared on their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. 

The Global Day of Solidarity was Carers Worldwide’s first attempt at bringing carers and staff from all their project areas together in a global, virtual event. The outstanding success of the day has inspired the charity to start thinking about ways that they can bring the caring community together again virtually in future activities.
