Where ever there is a tragedy and hardship, you will find a church and its people working to comfort the afflicted, provide for crucial needs and help rebuild for a better and more secure future. Now, with the outbreak of the Covid-19 global pandemic, the church is once again facing a new challenge. This time it’s affecting, not just the world’s most vulnerable, but also our country, our neighbours and our families.  

This resource kit gives you a full overview of the principles of Psychosocial support, when and how to intervene.  The many different responses people can have to a disaster or crisis, support strategies and key ways you can appropriately respond and assist.   

There are few things as powerful as a church in action, grieving with those impacted and meeting the immediate needs in its surrounding community. Few organisations are as well placed as the church to respond immediately and to stay and comfort the afflicted following times of tragedy.
