Covid19. France. “Extraordinary” people

Council General International

The Covid-19 pandemic is a historic crisis that will be part of modern history. The network of associations, as well as other sectors, have been harshly affected.

At the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, volunteers have adapted to this situation. Youths have rallied to take over the work of self-confined seniors. The ‘Quarantaide’ initiative, a journal of solidarity 2.0, resulted from this, sharing news every single day of lockdown, while keeping innovation and creativity in the actions undertaken to help vulnerable groups.

This dramatic situation led to actions, carried out by ‘Extraordinary’ people, whose testimonials will be published throughout the year on the SSVP France’s website and social media.
