Since March 19th, Secretary-General of Global Peace Women (GPW), Dr. Soonok Kang has been sending weekly messages uplifting a healthy and happy family culture from home to community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Kang would like to share best practices from family activities like making masks to gratitude journals as well as our GPF family’s kindness stories in helping neighbors each Friday.
If you wish to share best practices for families to build a healthy and happy family environment during the Coronavirus pandemic, please email Dr. Soonok Kang: [email protected]
Dear Global Family,
I hope you and your family are safe and healthy during these long days of quarantine.
Whenever we go out to buy supplies, visit the pharmacy, step out for an important errand or get food, more important than sanitizing is remembering to wash your hands.
This simple and very important step makes a large difference in preventing the spread of infection, yet often we forget to do it right. Here is a cheerful video from our team at GPF Malaysia joining the #washchallenge to make this process a little more enjoyable with your family.
- Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.
- Make sure to wash the areas that are easily neglected: back of your hands, between the fingers and the tip of your fingers.
- If you wear gloves, wash them properly when you return home.
- If they are disposable, throw them in properly in the wastebasket.
It’s easy to assume that we ourselves are not taking part in the outbreak of COVID-19, but the small actions we take add up to ensure the health and safety for the greater good starting from your home.
Most importantly, if you have children, they will learn everything from your smallest and simplest habits as an example. Take this opportunity to share the importance of maintaining proper hygiene as a public service for your community to your children.
Most importantly, remember to make this process enjoyable, like our lovely team in GPF Malaysia’s #washchallenge video!
From Global Peace Women, we send our prayers for the health and safety of our global family.
Dr. Soonok Kang,
Secretary General, Global Peace Women
