The year 2020 has undoubtedly been a challenging year and for some of us has tested us more often than we thought possible, bringing with it a rollercoaster of emotions.

But amidst all of this let us understand that despite the array of challenges that we may have faced there are still others who are in far dire straits than we are and whose livelihoods have been impacted in a significant way.

As we try to find our bearings after the last 12 months don’t forget to give back to the community, to the organisations and individuals whose work continued amongst the chaos and confusion as more and more people turned to them for help.

Giving doesn’t need to be monetary either, it can simply be committing some of your free time to volunteer or lending your voice to a cause. Giving means opening your hearts and using your ability to help others it doesn’t matter what form it takes.

It is about sharing willingly and wholeheartedly and understanding that the smallest action has the potential to make a big difference to someone else’s life. If you want to help but don’t know how to, ask, contact them and they are more than willing to assist.

As we begin another year remember to be grateful for what we have but also lend a hand to organisations and individuals who have been hardest hit by this pandemic, to come together and rebuild our society starting with the building blocks who do so much but receive so little in return.
