Our response to the global pandemic
The global crisis that unfolded in recent months changed our ‘normal’ dramatically and shifted the systems and structures we operate in. Above all, it was a sobering reminder of the work still to be done globally in empowering and building the resilience of vulnerable communities.
At Ishk, we have seen first hand how this crisis impacts our communities and beneficiaries and we have adapted our response in the following ways:
Committed funds to COVID relief
and worked with our networks to mobilise this
for employees of our affiliated business to carry out COVID relief initiatives in their communities
Reshaped our processes
to address the immediate needs arising among partners and communities
Migrated learning and engagement
for Ishk Skills Hub and
Ishk Peduli Anak Indonesia to Whatsapp and Facebook
As the situation evolves, we continue to work with partners to build meaningful solutions that support the sustainable, long-term recovery of the underserved communities who have been affected by this crisis the most.
We continue to be inspired as a team by the collective resilience and kindness we have seen in the global community. The nature of the pandemic has emphasised how our individual actions can make a significant difference to the lives of others and this we believe will continue to hold true even after the crisis dies down.
