Very tentative start dates for the 2020 semester are scheduled. Meanwhile, Alfalit’s affiliates in other countries adjusted operations with our guidance and suggestions. The financial and personal hardships experienced by our global family are intensified by extreme poverty, food scarcity, domestic violence, etc. Affiliate staff and volunteers are hard at work to provide food relief, clean drinking water, masks, other health and safety materials, and mental health referrals. See this video for just one instance of how we addressed the virus in another country. Going forward, Alfalit plans a renewed emphasis on disease prevention and personal hygiene as a part of classes.
The Headquarters team worked from home and in late May began to return to the office on a rotational basis while following all CDC safety protocols. Visitors are also asked to comply with hygiene information in our programs in the hopes that we can assist the residents of the countries we serve for years to come.
