Many Sisters have expressed to Sisters Rising Worldwide the need for micro-trainings and customized emergency preparedness plans to deal with COVID-19 in their communities. In partnership with Alight, we immediately made available to them access to Medical Advisor, Dr. Terence Francisco. Dr. Francisco is doing virtual calls via Zoom to learn about Sisters’ specific risks, the risks of their communities and the type of work they do to serve their community. Dr. Terence shares basic information on prevention measures and creates a customized plan based on their responses that serves as an emergency preparedness plan.
Based on the findings of this call, we work to support the Sisters, and help fill in the gaps. This may be financial support or getting emergency supplies for them. It will look different for different Sisters.
Since we began this focus a few weeks ago, 5 more doctors have become available for Sisters.
