We believe taking care of each other is paramount to human beings existence. The year 2020 has taken us all somewhere we have not been before, The Covid19 pandemic has shown us incredible kindness and selfless acts from others in communities, communities coming together, neighbours talking to each other and supporting one another again. We want to help those who are more at risk, the strong, amazing humans already battling health conditions that deserve our respect and support. We will be sending donations to the British Lung Foundation and other charities chosen by you, the public each month. As well as offering counselling and well being sessions. Home renovations and modifications for those who are unable to do due to ill health or financial difficulty.
If we could look into each other's heart and understand the unique challenges each one of us face, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance and care. Marvin J. Ashton.
Hi, My name is Nina, I am the founder of ShieldUs. Two of my children have a rare, progressive, genetic lung disease, so along with over 2 million people in the UK we were asked to shield in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This led to me as a mother feeling very anxious for my at risk children, anxious about what the future might hold. My son who is 8 and shielded was also concerned and worried about life when he was allowed to leave the house again. We were told we could undertake an hours daily exercise from the end of May, we noticed as a family how anxious my son was becoming being out and around other people, so our concept was born ShieldUs. We want to help alleviate some of these anxieties for those who have had to shield and help others in our communities recognise that these people may need extra space and may be feeling anxious as we slowly return to our new normal.
We want people to feel safe and comfortable as they return to work, shops and daily life, protecting those who need it the most is something we feel very passionately about.
