Message to Siemenpuu’s partners during coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear partners and friends,

The unforeseen coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has caused rapid changes in the societies all over the world. There is a lot of uncertainty about what will happen next.

We hope you all will be able to stay safe and take care of yourselves, your team, your families and communities. Please follow the advice of your government and of the WHO on how we can all act to reduce the spread of the virus.

We all are affected by the coronavirus crisis in different ways. Unfortunately, the most vulnerable and marginalized may suffer the most as the virus is sweeping across our societies.

For the time being, the pandemic will seriously affect the possibilities of our partners to continue their work. In this challenging time, we at the Siemenpuu Foundation understand that the needs and priorities are changing rapidly. We believe that our partners are the ones who know what will work best for their organisation and the communities they serve, and we aim to be as flexible as possible if there is need to adjust project activities funded by Siemenpuu.

We have been already in contact with many of you, and hope to be in touch with the rest of you in coming weeks in order to understand better your situation.

We hope the shared fight against this global pandemic will in the end strengthen the global solidarity.

Stay safe and take care!

The Siemenpuu team
