Employee at the JobCenter Rhein-Sieg
As for all people in this world, I too am deeply shocked by the current situation. As a risk group, I have been in complete isolation since 16th March. My work in the job centre is currently carried out in my home office. It is more important than ever to be there for the people who now have to live at the minimum subsistence level and the highest priority is to provide them with basic security.
For me personally, my family and my friends it is a difficult time not to have personal contact. Family and friends are the most important thing for me. People you can rely on in good and bad times. To live restricted, not to be mobile, to be dependent on other people, these are things that people with a handicap have to deal with every day and therefore cope with this situation better than a "normal" person. The solidarity that is now being experienced worldwide is a wonderful experience for all people and shows us more than ever that we are only strong together and that we need each other. My wish for the politicians is that after the crisis something is finally done ... talking was yesterday, acting is today!
