#TheUMHaccompaniesyou VOLUNTARY SERVICE


voluntariado COVID-19Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic and the declaration of a state of emergency by the Spanish government to combat it, the Miguel Hernández University of Elche, through its area of Development Cooperation and Volunteerism at the Vice Rectorate for International Relations, and in conjunction with the Spanish Red Cross, is launching the #LaUMHteAcompaña (TheUMHaccompaniesyou) voluntary service program. This initiative aims to alleviate the loneliness that that this pandemic is causing in elders through telephone calls made to them during the quarantine, and then for an additional three months after the quarantine concludes.

This intervention is aimed mainly at elders from the Province of Alicante who either live alone (or with a partner) in their own homes, as well as elders in nursing homes/residential care centers, who do not have immediate family members nearby and who have been affected by the new isolation measures (individual and small group) that have been adopted.

UMH undergraduate students and alumni of medicine, occupational therapy, and psychology may volunteer, as well as graduate students and alumni of the Clinical Medicine Research, General Health Psychology, Gerontology and Health, Health Management, Occupational Therapy in Neurology, and Primary Health Care Research programs. UMH faculty and research personnel from similar programs are also encouraged to participate.

CANCELLATION OF THE 2020 VOLUNTEER PROGRAM IN RWANDA


On March 14, a state of emergency was declared by the Government of Spain in Royal Decree 463/2020 in order to address the ongoing health crisis caused by the coronavirus. The measures that this declaration imposes, in addition to the directives adopted by the regional government of Valencia, has hereby suspended all mobility by students and faculty as well as all general educational activities for the time being.

This situation, with the uncertainty regarding a possible date for a return to normalcy and therefore the ability to ensure proper management of this call, along a sense of responsibility of not wanting to risk further spread of the virus to Rwanda where it could wreak havoc, has led the UMH to decide against sending anybody to Rwanda this summer. As such, the Area of Development Cooperation and Volunteerism and the UMH Vice Rectorate for International Relations have CANCELLED the Volunteer program in Rwanda for 2020.
