Mosques and temples are helping to assist the elderly and the vulnerable in their towns and cities.
As the countrywide lockdown takes hold within the first week many religious and community organisations have been helping ALL members of their community.
The army of volunteers have been collecting food and essentials to ensure those people that need the most help at this time of crisis are being cared for.
At many times they are putting themselves in harm’s way.
The Bolton Hindu Forum said they are leading ‘a joint Coordinated Community Help Program to look after elders living alone and who have no immediate family and those who have family but they are out of town and not able to help as they would in normal circumstances’.
The Masjide Noorul Islam (Blackburn) have already recruited 250 people to help the elderly and vulnerable in isolation.
