The funds raised will help as their first economic defense.// Los vendedores de Mi Valedor confian en la venta de la revista callejera para generar sus ingresos. Como personas excluidas y vulnerables se ven gravemente afectados por la pandemia de COVID19. Los fondos recaudados serviran como su primera defensa economica.

Challenge

Valedores are typically older, male, and homeless individuals, extremely vulnerable sectors to the health risks posed by the virus. They will be the first to feel the economic consequences, as their income comes from the street sales.// Los valedores suelen ser hombres, mayores y sin hogar, sectores sumamente vulnerables a los riesgos para la salud que representa el virus. Seran los primeros en sentir las consecuencias economicas, ya que sus ingresos provienen de la venta callejera.

Solution

Raised funds will help an Emergency Support Fund, serving as the first economic defense for Valedores in need of medical support, shelter and/or staples. It will also ensure that the project continues to offer its basic day-to-day services.// Todo lo recaudado ira al Fondo de Apoyo de Emergencia que servira como primera defensa economica para Valedores que necesitan apoyo medico, refugio y/o productos basicos. Tambien garantizara que el proyecto continue ofreciendo sus servicios basicos diarios.

Long-Term Impact

The continuation of Mexico's only street paper and the prosperity of its vendors -the beloved Valedores- is at risk. In the midst of a pandemic our vulnerable populations are the most exposed. Your contribution can make a difference.// La continuidad del unico periodico callejero de Mexico y la prosperidad de sus vendedores -los amados Valedores- esta en riesgo. En medio de una pandemia, nuestras poblaciones vulnerables son las mas expuestas. Su contribucion puede hacer la diferencia.
