Without a doubt, the year 2020 was very complicated, they had to redouble their efforts so that girls, boys and young people who could not stay at home, because they do not have one or because the street is their work space, would have a safe space in ednica and that would take them away from COVID-19.

With the group of families, we will be providing support with a pantry to contribute to the feeding of the families, carrying out actions for the promotion of healthy eating, and when the main activities can be resumed, generating psycho-educational workshops for the promotion of healthy habits that contribute to the self-care of health.

Similarly, the goods and services we will be implementing are
1) Continuous educational processes.
2) Workshops.
3) Therapeutic processes.
4) Hygiene services.
5) Lunches and snacks with young people linked to street life, and delivery of monthly groceries to families working on the street.
6) Referral to specialized health services. In this way, the attention we provide, from a rights approach.

This was carried out in safe spaces and with the necessary disinfection measures, so that; and based on our "Theory of Change" and the intervention variables that we have designed, we can promote their physical, emotional and social development that will help in the exercise of their right to health and later, build a life project not determined by the street.

In this way, young people attending our two community centers were able to receive timely guidance on the pandemic, wash their clothes, bathe and prepare food. Given the circumstances in which we find ourselves in our country, the operating teams of both community centers designed protocols for coexistence at the time of providing these services; at the beginning of each session it was verified that the young people living on the street had an adequate temperature, washed their hands and wore mouthpieces and masks, and that during their activities an adequate distance was promoted and antibacterial gel was continuously distributed.

In addition to the daily assistance services, accompaniments were also provided to the medical service for those who presented some stomach illnesses or minor infections; and to legal procedures for those in conflict with the law; haircuts were performed, different donations were distributed such as antibacterial gel, mouth

In ednica, we support two groups:

1. Boys, girls and adolescents and their families who work on the streets of Mexico City.
2. Adolescents and young people who live on the streets of Mexico City.

Unfortunately, with this health emergency, they have been extremely affected and thanks to the support of each and every one of the donors who have joined this campaign.

With this support, together with other partners, we have been able to obtain food to help families who work on the streets and whose income has been greatly affected by the health and economic crisis.

On the other hand, homless young people, who already lived in difficult conditions, have less income, because they support street stores or ask for people's support. They do not have spaces to take care of their hygiene and their food is deficient. For this reason, with your donations we have promoted actions of emotional strengthening, spaces for the care of their personal hygiene and support for them to prepare their food.

During this period, we have established protocols to avoid any risk of contagion in them and their collaborators and we make referrals to specialized medical care spaces, if necessary.

Thank you very much for trusting us and for helping us not to leave them alone.
