Throughout the last two years NARA - The Breathing Charity has kept going and been extremely busy with the provision of equipment and accessories for those who struggle to breathe. Although very few visits were achieved, we have always been on the end of a phone, or on social media to offer constant help and support. We are still living through some strange and difficult times and although restrictions have now been lifted, we must all remember that Covid is still amongst us. However, despite this we must also try to regain some kind of ‘New Normal’.
All at NARA will continue to wear a face covering and take sensible precautions at all times, both to protect our staff and patients. It’s obvious that those we deal with are all vulnerable, be they a newborn tiny baby, young adults, or a more elderly member of the community. Indeed, some are still separated from family and friends making them very isolated and alone, while others feel they are still in lockdown.
Speaking to one of our elderly gentleman patients, he said he had not been outside his home, except for essentials, for over two years. He said he was so very, very grateful to NARA for his equipment as it has kept him out of hospital, and our chats have kept him going.
Many people and businesses who have given so generously over the years are still facing difficulties, indeed some are now no longer able to assist us, or donate at this time. We therefore ask if you could consider a small donation or think of a way you could raise funds to ensure we can still continue our everyday work, slowly build on our ‘new normal’ and resume many more visits to our patients.
Thank you for your continued support.
