In this time of Covid 19 crisis, we are thinking of the residents and the wonderful staff working in Bloomfield Health Services. Founded in 1812 by The Religious Society of Friends, Bloomfield today consists of New Lodge Nursing Home with 36 beds and a Mental Health facility of 114 beds with a staff complement of over 200, from all around the world.
Bloomfield will need an Emergency Fund to help them all through lockdown, isolation and infection. Their immediate need is for iPads/tablets to help residents connect with and talk to their families remotely but they will have to face and cope with other unexpected consequences for both residents and staff. We ask Friends all over Ireland to Back Our Bloomfield Heroes.
We appreciate that many of you are already coping with job losses and other personal and financial difficulties so our appeal is to those who can help to please donate to our own Quaker charity.
