#caremongering in the Kindness Pandemic


#caremongering in the Kindness Pandemic


Among the daily news of bad behaviour – selfish stockpiling, ignorant racism and reckless irresponsibility – come stories of great kindness: Communities looking out for each other and new friendships flowering, albeit at an appropriate social distance. 

“Caremongering, not scaremongering,” is the rallying cry of Canadian volunteers and altruists as they band together to bring food and essentials to their country’s most vulnerable. 

In the UK, an umbrella organisation, COVID-19 Mutual Aid UK, has been set up to manage the thousands of small volunteer community groups that have sprung up across the country. Self-isolating and need emergency supplies? A friendly phone call or a dog walked? COVID-19 Mutual Aid’s database helps connect Brits with people in their postcode area who can reach out to help. Across Australia, neighbourhoods have set up community Facebook and WhatsApp groups to bring people together.

Closeness had nothing to do with distance

As borders close and we edge closer towards lockdown in this season of uncertainty, it will be more important than ever to find ways to connect and care for each other.

Have you started yet?

Here are some practical ways you can look out for people in your community:

  • Leaflet your neighbourhood with offers to help
    Make sure they have your contact details so they know how to reach you.

    We wrote to everyone in our road and have received wonderful texts, emails and even hand-written notes in reply. We have got to know neighbours at the far end of our street who we’d never met before, including an elderly self-isolating couple who go out on their boat to chat to us from across the canal.



How are you reaching out in the current crisis? Let us know in your comments below.
