Staggering Number of Children Lost a Parent to COVID
April 19, 2021
At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
-Albert Schweitzer
Dear Exchange Community,

I recently read some disturbing statistics on the CNN website:

“A new model estimates that nearly 40,000 children have lost a parent to Covid-19, and black children have been disproportionately affected, according to a new research letter published Monday in the journal JAMA Pediatrics,” writes Naomi Thomas.

"'The number of children experiencing a parent dying of Covid-19 is staggering, with an estimated 37,300 to 43,000 already affected," said the research letter, led by Rachel Kidman of the Program in Public Health at Stony Brook University. Black children are disproportionately affected, comprising only 14% of children in the US but 20% of those losing a parent to Covid-19.'"

We at Exchange want to offer whatever help we can as you support children and families affected by such tragic numbers.

You are doing such important work. We are on your side.

Nancy Rosenow
Exchange Publisher,
