Maureen Ndawana, Community and Engagement Officer for the African Health Policy Network and coordinator of Ffena, a network of Africans in the UK living with and affected by HIV, tells us about how they have been able to keep their members connected with help from NSUN.

AHPN aims to improve the health and wellbeing of BAME people living in the UK who are disproportionately affected by long term health conditions such as HIV, mental health issues, diabetes, cancer and others. They work to lessen the impacts of these inequalities and challenge intersecting issues of stigma, marginalisation, isolation, poverty, discrimination and racism – which in turn impact health outcomes. Money from the NSUN COVID-19 fund helped them purchase devices for their elderly members to keep them connected throughout isolation.

We are a group of migrant support organisations from across England, providing a wide variety of services to many different communities. We have come together with NSUN because promoting the mental health of our communities is a vital part of the work we do.
