Volunteering Guidance: Spanish/English

Information on volunteering during the Coronavirus crisis from Somos Tribu VK - a mutual aid group.

Click here for the Somos Tribu VK Facebook page.

English Translation:

- Do NOT volunteer if you have any symptom, for small it is.

Please, take rest and recover.

- Act as an onion (slides) first attend your family, then friends, then people in your building, then people close to you.

- Avoid using public transport.

Just cover small distances.

- Provide an email contact not personal, just one specifically Created for this.

If available, a prepaid phone, not personal number. Best case would be to use a collective phone number (charity or group in you area).

- Add advertisements in your area for people to contact or in case they need to report some others in need.

Spanish Text:

Protocol general (Personas voluntarias)

- Abstente si tiene algún síntoma aunque sea leve o has estado en contacto con alguna persona enferma.

Seguro que hay más cosas que puedes hacer desde casa para ayudar (entre otras, ponerte bien, rápido...).

- Actúa por capas, como una cebolla. Primero familia y amigos.

Luego busca con quien colaborar en tu proprio edificio. Luego personas cercanas de tu área.

No acudas a ningún sitio muy lejano de tu domicillo, a donde tengas que tomar el transporte público.

- Si es posible, pon una forma de contacto que no sea tuya personal.

Por ejemplo una cuenta de correo creada para la ocasión, un teléfono móvil prepago nuevo o similar (esto coordinándote con gente de tu zona).

- Pon carteles en sitios visibles, y añade que si alguien conoce una persona en situación de necesidad que avise también.

- ¡Actúa siempre de forma responsable!
