Hundreds of thousands of people in Hong Kong are affected by the outbreak of the coronavirus. UNICEF HK is working with our partners to keep children and their families safe amid the pandemic. As part of the global efforts in preventing the spread of the virus and reducing stress and anxiety among children and adolescents, ‘for every child, hygiene’ 「童你抗疫」衞生行動 disseminates educational resources on personal hygiene, disease prevention and control to 10,000 grassroots families living in subdivided flats. Hygiene bags with personal care items and self-sanitizing coating service are also delivered through home visits.
Globally, children are at risk from the disease, but also from the disruption to health and education services, impacts on caregivers, and separation from family members.
UNICEF is helping to prevent the spread of coronavirus by supplying vital medical supplies (such as gloves and masks), educating communities and implementing prevention campaigns. Our priority is to stop the spread of this new virus.
