Support the health mediators in the special edition of The Change 2020

PosterSofia, November 1, 2020

From November 1 onward everyone can support the Association "National Network of Health Mediators" (NNHM) and make them stronger in their activities.
Support the NNHM project in the special edition of “The Change”. This is the largest socially responsible initiative of Reach for Change Bulgaria in partnership with Nova Broadcasting Group. In 2020, the competition is dedicated to the children most severely affected by COVID-19 with the financial support of ING, Aurubis Bulgaria and NN Bulgaria.
In the context of the Corona virus pandemic, health mediators are at the forefront of their communities to inform, support and assist them. In this situation, young people are among the most severely affected. They limit their social contacts and face-to-face education in schools. Many of them wonder why there is a need for emergency epidemic measures and restrictions against something they do not recognize as a real threat.

They find themselves in a communication crisis in which there are no clear messages to them, and fake news on social networks further creates disorientation in which young people cannot reasonably assess how real and global the threat is. This provides a risky environment of increased social tension, disorientation and mistrust.
It is vital to protect children and that is why in THE CHANGE the NMHW will work with young people from mutual support groups in Burgas, Sliven, Montana and the village of Dolni Tsibar. The main goal is to improve their health culture for disease prevention, including Covid, and to build capacity to be more responsible and prepared. They are expected to be the young awakeners in their family and friends, and the health mediators will be mentoring these youth groups and campaigns.
