With the covid-19 still looming, more and more citizens are greatly affected . In need of help and support, Florence and National Care Force is a response to the crisis with a commitment of helping care workers, health workers and volunteers reach out to vulnerable locals who depend on vital services.

People are resilient

Resilience is defined as the ability – and tendency – to “bounce back.” The goal of resilience is to thrive in a highly stressful situation or crisis. People who are more resilient are capable of adapting to adversity.


People who are resilient tends to be more aware of situations, their own emotional reactions and the behavior of those around them. In order to manage feelings, it is essential to understand what is causing them and why. By remaining aware, resilient people can maintain control of a situation and think of new ways to tackle problems.


Technology connects us together

Technology helps us connect beyond the social media aspect. With Florence and National Care Force, these platforms makes reaching out to health care more convenient.


It’s often said that technology drives us apart, but the reality is, technology has been keeping us all connected. With the recent crisis affecting our day-to-day activities, technology has been providing the solutions that allows us to live our "normal" lives.


It's important to remember the people who are closest to our hearts: family, friends, and loved ones. Technology helps us connect.
