As the Coronavirus continues to spread across the globe, governments, businesses, and individuals are trying to work out what it means for them, how to protect themselves and how they can help.

In many ways, Wilmat Development Foundation is an embodiment of remote work already. In ordinary times, our community enjoys an engagement that allows them to have freedom over their time and location, but in these uncertain times, it also provides a safer environment to work in.

It is becoming increasingly clear that businesses around the world are likely to be impacted by the changes imposed because of Coronavirus. More people are being instructed to spend less time in public places and more time at home.

We’ve been thinking about ways in which we can help our community especially in the rural areas that are hard to reach on how to manage in this new environment that is full of uncertain times and soon we shall roll out a Relief Program in support for our target beneficiaries in our already established Women Groups and Children’s Homes.

Millions of people around the world are finding themselves in a new business reality, quarantined in their homes or with major travel restrictions, we hope and pray that this situation calms down.

Lastly, Staying safe is key and having a healthy body and mind is key to a better living.

Make sure that you continue to follow your government’s, Ministry of Health’s and World Health Organization’s guidance and please stay safe.
