Generosity is the best medicine for those most affected. And the Covid-19 pandemic has been a reminder that we need to be kind to our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
Many communities, especially the local Angolan community, have been hit hard, not only with the deadly disease, but also with its ramifications. Many unemployment and other problems that have caused countless situations in people's lives. In the meantime, the economy continues to progress gradually towards reopening. This means that jobs will again be available to the local community. However, the pandemic is not yet over. The transmission of the virus is still active among the population and can be dangerous to you or your loved ones.
To help the community in this difficult phase, THE ANGOLAN ASSOCIATION OF NEW ENGLAND is providing safety kits to the local population. This should help them to operate without the danger of transmitting the Covid-19 and can earn an honest day of work, protecting themselves from the pandemic that has cost us many lives. Each kit has a mask, gloves, and a bottle of hand sanitizer to ensure everyone gets the security they deserve. For those who need protection kits, they can contact the Luanda Restaurant and Lounge. Distribution starts at 11 am and ends at 6 pm.
So, we ask the community not to leave without adequate protection to keep you and your loved ones safe.
