Due to the Corona pandemic and the lockdown measures put into place, many people around the world have lost their income and are currently facing financial difficulties or even poverty. Through ICYE, personal friendships – between former volunteers, host families and project teams – have been built across national borders. The ICYE Corona Support Group (see https://www.facebook.com/groups/836056866902448/about/) builds on this solidarity and friendship: it allows ICYE members to help ICYE members. It is open to all ICYE members around the world who wish to offer or to seek financial assistance.
How to participate:
Step 1: Go to the Facebook Group and ask to become a member.
Step 2: When you have been accepted as a member, post whether you would like to help or need help.
Step 3: Contact your National ICYE Committee to help with money transfer.
