Thousands of primary school children writing to lonely care home residents thanks to a 16-year-old student
Posted on July 16, 2020
Nina Andersen, a 16-year old student from London, first set up Community Senior Music, where semi-professional musicians performed concerts at various care homes.
After, when the COVID-19 crisis started, she then set up Community Senior Letters, an initiative that has helped match more than 120 primary schools and over 100 care homes, to write letters to elderly with the aim to alleviate their boredom and loneliness.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has announced there is currently no evidence indicating COVID-19 can be spread through post, allowing letters to be received safely by the care homes.
This initiative demonstrates that even a small act of kindness, such as writing and sending a letter or a drawing, can make a big difference to someone elseâ€™s life.
Nina Andersen and Community Senior Letters would love that more schools and care homes get involved. You can do it by writing to email@example.com
