While constantly expressing her views; As COVID-19 pandemic continues to expand in Sri Lanka and in the world, only one thing is certain, that the current outbreak profound impact not only in the health and economic situation, but also on the psychosocial well-being of societies across nations.

In the current context of lock down and restriction of movements, children have constrained for access to socialization, play, and even physical contact, critical for their psychosocial wellbeing and development. School closures are preventing children from access to learning and limiting their interactions with peers. Children are confused and feeling the loss of childhood due to the current situation with leading to frustration and anxiety.

  • By helping children through a role play. 
  • Be a role model because Children will react to and follow your reactions. They learn from your examples.
  • To promote an environment where children can grow up and develop their full potential having fun and being safe and healthy.
