Today the Government said that it would establish a network of hubs around the country to cater to the need of those most vulnerable to COVID-19, and that those hubs would partly rely on the help of volunteers.
We have already witnessed the best of our country coming together as the NHS mobilises to treat those affected by COVID-19, as manufacturers divert their resources to designing and mass-producing ventilators, as retired medical professionals answer the call from the frontlines for help, and as scientists hurry to develop tests and vaccines.
Campaign Against Antisemitism is a volunteer-led organisation and many of our volunteers now find themselves at home with time and talents to contribute. We would be very pleased to hear from other charities or the Government as to how our volunteers can support the national effort. We have written to our contacts at 10 Downing Street to seek any direction from them as to how we can help.
Meanwhile, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic intensifies, Campaign Against Antisemitism endeavours to continue our work as usual. We are in particular seeking to expose and silence conspiracy theorists who are claiming that the pandemic is the work of Jews.
We have taken internal measures to avoid exposing our team to risks, but our charity is built to be extremely resilient and we are lucky to be able to rely on extraordinary volunteers. Nevertheless, our fundraising is impacted and your support will be even more gratefully received than ever before.
In this precarious period for the country and the world, Campaign Against Antisemitism wishes everyone good health.
