UCA Staff Contribute 1-Day’s Salary to COVID-19 Solidarity Fund
The University of Central Asia (UCA) has established a fund to provide assistance to families suffering as a result of the humanitarian and economic impact of COVID-19. Staff at UCA are donating a day’s salary to this fund on a voluntary basis, which will be distributed to families in need.
UCA distributed information posters in Naryn (Kyrgyzstan) and Khorog (Tajikstian) as part of the University’s COVID-19 prevention efforts.
The University of Central Asia also distributed food and medical supplies to 500 families identified by the Mayor’s office as being in the socially vulnerable category in Naryn, and has prepared 90 beds on the campus grounds for observation zones as part of the mitigation procedures for COVID-19. To give a boost to the local economy, UCA purchased mattresses, blankets, pillows and linen made by women from the rural areas of Naryn.
