Boy washing his hands
The last three months have been difficult for all people in the world due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has stopped the world and in a very sad way, has seen many people die in all countries, in addition to generating much economic and social instability.
Mexico and Chiapas have not been the exception, economic paralysis, along with fear and ignorance, have made child workers feel even more vulnerable.
The economic situation of the 250 children that Melel Xojobal cares for, work in craft markets, as well as in food markets, which have had to close to prevent the virus from spreading, tourism has been canceled and therefore their income has been reduced and many of his parents have been left without work.
For security reasons, we have not held workshops and activities with children, however, we maintain contact by phone and social networks, if they have them, to find out how they are and what they need, also, thanks to the contributions of people like you. At GlobalGiving we have been able to deliver “solidarity pantries” to the families that need it most.
We hope that the resumption of activities is healthy and safe and that soon we can continue our work, which will undoubtedly undergo changes, what we are sure of, is that we must move towards a more just and equitable society that learns from situations like this for the common good.
The best for you always and thanks for your constant support.
