1) Take care of yourself and others
2) Ask if there’s anything you can do to help
If you are well yourself, and you do not suspect that you have been infected, neighbourly help is a good way to be of use. You may ask your neighbours or acquaintances if they need help with grocery shopping, for example.
3) Sign up and train online
4) Donate blood
If you are feeling well and meet the prerequisites for donating blood, you are welcome to donate blood. More information on the Blood Service website: www.bloodservice.fi
With your help the Red Cross can help vulnerable people in Finland and abroad during the Corona epidemic. We support preparedness in Finland by training volunteers to help anyone who is lonely, for example. In Greece and Turkey, we support aid work to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and to protect women’s rights.
Additional tip: False information about the coronavirus is spreading. Monitor news channels maintained by reliable media, organisations and authorities, share information published by them and follow instructions issued by the authorities.
