World Journal: 陳詩敏訪散房長者 逐戶送防疫物資

第一區市議員候選人陳詩敏(Connie Chan)和她的義工團隊近日探訪列治文區的散房(SRO),逐家逐戶敲門,送上洗乾淨後可重複使用的布質口罩、洗手液和自製餅乾。


陳詩敏說:「我們必須確保最脆弱的人群有機會獲得口罩和其他個人防護裝備(PPE)。這樣,他們才能安全地去雜貨店購物,避免新型冠狀病毒(COVID-19)在住客當中傳播。」


過去幾周,陳詩敏的義工團隊一直在列治文區用英語和廣東話打電話,以確保孤寡老人能夠獲得食物、藥品和基本生活用品,包括口罩。


雖然列治文區有一個強大的長者服務網絡,但陳詩敏的競選陣營發現,健康檢查對於支持那些獨居且尚未與長者老年中心建立聯繫的長者來說非常重要。她們認為,散房居民在COVID-19疫情中最危險,因為這些居民往往是長者,並且共用包括廚房和浴室在內的許多生活設施。


目前,全市共有散房住客1萬9000戶。列治文區有3棟散房樓宇,主要居住著移民和單一語種(廣東話)的華裔長者。
