Words at the window from those in isolation

                                  Words at the window from those in isolation


        Stephen Lovekin has started photographing families isolating in Brooklyn, New York.

Lovekin asked each family to share a message with the world.


"I hope that in this time of chaos and uncertainty, this project will help people feel more connected to the outside world even though we are all literally separated from one another for an unknown amount of time," Lovekin says.

"If we continue to communicate and connect with those around us in a direct, honest, and positive way, we can get through this together.

Asiyah and Jawad Javed

Asiyah and Jawad Javed found an elderly woman crying outside a supermarket because she could not buy any handwash or sanitiser. The couple, who own a Falkirk corner shop called Day Today Express, decided to act. Using £2,000 of savings, the Javeds began putting together bags of soap, gel and masks and delivering them free to elderly people in the neighbourhood after closing time.


9 -    How the Sunday Times's readers reacted to Asiyah and Jawad Javed's initiative.  (The Times)

  1. A big cheer for Asiyah and Jawad - what a contrast to some other behaviour we're seeing. Very uplifting :-)
  2. Restores faith in humanity following the horrendous selfish hoarding by a large number of people across the country. Well done to the initiative of this fantastic couple, their supplier and the community showing how things should be done.
  3. Make this the headline story of the day! It's so heartwarming to hear such lovely stories in these awful times. Thank you.
  4. Well done Asiyah and Jawad - what lovely people you are. Thank you.
  5. Massive well done and thank you Asiyah and Jawad and everyone else who is pitching in with similar schemes - very heart warming, a real treat to read about.
  6. Exemplary humanity. A precious lesson for all.
  7. Lovely people. Hopefully we will see more human kindness.
  8. Wonderful people, generous and caring an example to us all.
  9. What a great article - only 24 comments though! What does that say about the readership. Can we have more like this please and less of the down beat depressing stuff? The more you publicise something, the more it happens. So please, do more to inspire more.
  10. The people in the cul-de-sac where I live have formed a WhatsApp group to keep tabs on each other and offer support to the elderly and infirm. Some are volunteering to get the shopping for a chap in his nineties and for a lady who has had a heart transplant. It’s reaffirming my faith in humanity.
