On Thursday last week, The Countess of Wessex joined a series of video conferences with organisations with which she works, to find out how different communities are dealing with the Coronavirus outbreak.
“The change is just all around and it’s happening every second.” James Sinclair, autistic adult and ambassador for the @nationalautisticsociety
, speaks during a video call with HRH, Patron of the Society, Emma, a parent supported by the charity, and Chief Executive Caroline Stevens.
The Countess spoke to the group about their experiences of changing routines, creating new habits and the resources available to support them during this time.
The Countess also joined a virtual meeting with @whatthewomensay
41 women peacebuilders, from countries across the world, including Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Colombia.
Her Royal Highness heard how their communities - already suffering as a result of conflict - have been impacted. The women are working hard on the ground to keep their communities safe, particularly the women and girls, and shared the difficulties they face in doing this, whilst responding to the outbreak.
