What Is The Covid-19 Care Package?
The Covid-19 Care Packages are provided, at no profit to people in isolation with the coronavirus and cannot access the products, support or services they may need.
These Care Packs Were Originally Provided By A Group Of Individuals And Businesses Who Wanted To Do What They Could To Help During The Corona Virus Pandemic.
In August 2021, after donating many of these care parcels worldwide, the care pack initiative was completely absorbed by Cancer Care Parcel. Cancer Care Parcel looks after all the demand, supply and distribution of the Covid-19 Care Parcels. These are still supplied, by Cancer Care Parcel, at no profit.
We are very grateful to all those who donated products, expertise and time to this initiative. My sympathies are with all those who suffered from COVID-19 infection and those who lost friends and loved ones. I also know that many have lost their jobs or their jobs have changed dramatically. I fall into all of these categories and whilst we all experience loss, pain, and change differently, I do know that these significant changes in our lives will shape and change us long into the future. Everyone has been affected to some degree by this pandemic and as the world slowly comes out of lockdown I know that the 'new normal' will be a different normal and just hope that it will be in some ways better, as we learn to adapt and evolve.
