COVID-19 Statement

Dear Friends of ISWS,

With the recent confirmation by the WHO of the coronavirus outbreak being an official pandemic, we are concerned for the health and safety of the volunteers, partners, and family and friends of ISWS. As a socially-minded organization, we are taking all possible steps to mitigate the risk of expanding the coronavirus outbreak and thereby helping to flatten the infection curve, as public health officials are advising. The organization is monitoring updates from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19, and we will continue to seek guidance from public health officials and government agencies on an ongoing basis as it pertains to granting stipends to social work volunteers interested in international projects.

We will continue to be a resource to you and encourage you to apply for stipends for projects scheduled to launch later in the year. We are confident that by working together, we will manage through this challenging time. Thank you for your continued partnership with International Social Work Solutions, Inc.

We wish you all well.

Thea Bader, MSW, LICSW
Executive Director
