Learning Resources to Support Staff during the COVID-19 Pandemic – and Beyond

DisasterReady.org [www.disasterready.org], a signature program of the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation, is an open online learning community built to empower humanitarians working in relief and development.

In order to support the workforce of the non-profit sector and NGOs during the current pandemic, they have created a new collection of short, engaging resources grouped in easy-to-navigate playlists, with content from top training providers (such as the Konterra Group, EJ4 or for French-speakers Institut Bioforce) and health specialists (like WHO and CDC). These playlists offer content to help everyone work safely, and to promote infection prevention, preparedness, and well-being during this pandemic. The collection also includes resources to support remote workers and the creation of engaging webcasts and online presentations.

All these resources are available in English and they have also a French playlist. Access is free and unlimited – just create an account on www.disasterready.org

      My Hero is You, How Kids can Fight COVID-19!

      This is a new story book that aims to help children understand and come to terms with COVID-19 has been produced by a collaboration of more than 50 organizations working in the humanitarian sector, including the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and Save the Children.

      With the help of a fantasy creature, Ario, “My Hero is You, How kids can fight COVID-19!” explains how children can protect themselves, their families and friends from coronavirus and how to manage difficult emotions when confronted with a new and rapidly changing reality.

      The book – aimed primarily at children aged 6-11 years old – is a project of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Reference Group on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings, a unique collaboration of United Nations agencies, national and international nongovernmental organizations and international agencies providing mental health and psychosocial support in emergency settings.

      During the early stages of the project, more than 1700 children, parents, caregivers and teachers from around the world shared how they were coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. The input was invaluable to script writer and illustrator Helen Patuck and the project team in making sure that the story and its messages resonated with children from different backgrounds and continents.

      In order to reach as many children as possible, the book has been widely translated into more than 30 languages. It is being released as both an online product and audio book. All languages are available in PDF form at the link below.
