“I have been living with panic but felt less worried now after joining this activity to understand better how to live with the pandemic safely. The epidemic has been lasting for a long time, so we parents need to know in order to protect and take care of our children, wear a mask when going out and limit gathering if not necessary. Self-protection seems the best to follow” – Mrs. N.T.H, a mother of a child with disabilities (TKT) in Gio My commune.

"I am clear now that we should not abuse sauna and only apply it when our body is healthy. It has been spreading that sauna is good for treating COVID-19 but in fact not. It could help disinfect and comfort us psychologically. " - Mrs. N.T.G, mother of a child with disabilities in Gio Hai commune.

“Before the Lunar New Year in Gio Linh town, whenever there was a new case, isolation barriers and warning signs could be seen as a warning for close interaction, but not at the moment. I was worried when approaching anyone with Covid-19 infection though they already fully recovered. With sharing in this activity, we are aware of and correctly understood of no discrimination. Instead, self-protection and adjustment of a number of our daily living habits are necessary” – Mr. N.T.H.L, PWD in Gio Linh town.
