Parenting in the Pandemic

My Hero is You: A Storybook for Children on COVID-19

My Hero is You was developed by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Reference Group on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings, and written with the input from parents, teachers, and children from 104 countries around the world. The story speaks to the mental health issues children may be experiencing during this time.

It’s free to download and there is a drive to make it available in as many languages as possible with the help of volunteers. Thirty translations have already been done but no South African languages aside from English are among them. Can you fix this or do you know someone who can? Details about submitting translations are here.

Let’s represent the children of SA and get this done!
