As they could not see in person their loved ones or give them a hug which meant so much to them. I decided to bring people back together socially within the local community where I worked after the COVID 19 PANADEMIC by creating and planning different themed and cultural, entertainment events. Which helped them with their anxiety and boosted their self esteem whilst socialising and engaging with others.
