In almost every country t social workers are working for the communities that are affected by the impact of Covid-19. Social well is responding very well instead of shortage of equipment, support and resources. Social workers are going beyond their boundaries to helping and supporting the local communities.
There are many ethical challenges that social workers are facing during the crisis. They are working longer than their shifts, spending their whole days without even thinking of their own health.
Social work has an essential frontline role in the fight against the spread of the virus, through protecting themselves and others through physical distancing and social solidarity. Other than that they are performing several key functions such as.
- Facilitating physical distancing and social solidarity.
- Ensuring better planning and quick response in terms of any emergency.
- Organising communities to ensure that essentials such as food and clean water is available.
