80 street working children and their families are at the moment living under constant insecurity and pressure due to the quarantine released by the coronavirus. They are not allowed to go working on the streets to maintain themselves and their families, which has caused a state financial shock and missing meals. Twice a week each one of the families receives a pantry that covers their most basic alimentary and sanitary needs, to provide the social protection they urgently need.
The most affected of the COVID-19 outbreak, are those who have the least. Families living in poverty are finding themselves in a moment of crisis, as their very basic necessities are not met. They are obliged to stay indoors because of the quarantine, preventing them from working on the streets to assure a minimum income and their survival. As a result, they are not able to pay rent, food, medicine or other vital goods. This project will assure the children and their families food on the table.
This project will assure food on the table for street working children and their families to avoid malnutrition and starvation and its long term consequences this can have. Twice a week we hand out pantries to cover the most basic need of people. The pantries contain beans, rice, eggs, oats, toilet paper etc., and are dropped off at the doorstep of the home of the children and families we work with, to eliminate part of the financial and health-related stress caused by quarantine.
The pantries will help the children and their families to cover their basic food need, and so prevent malnutrition and starvation. This will reduce financial and health-related shock and so the beneficiaries will be less exposed to contract the virus. This project will allow us to stay by the children's side in solidarity during this crisis. By donating you help to restrain the impoverishment of their situation, and so support them in their fight to survive and overcome the crisis best possible.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Educate 80 street working children in Guadalajara!. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
