As COVID-19 makes its way around the globe, we at Vital Voices Panama face an unprecedented crisis. Private sector companies and their donations represent the majority of our funds. With most of them facing their own economic challenges, we are now on the brink of losing our programs. However, we still have hope: to keep on working for the safety, health, and empowerment of women and girls in our country. Please help us keep our organization afloat!
As this pandemic spreads, we are faced with a global challenge that affects people in all corners of the world. Vital Voices Panama is no exception, and COVID-19 is having a deep impact on our sustainability model. An impact that might drive us into a indefinite cease of operations.
Your support today is crucial to keep our women and girls at risk (teen mothers and small girls living in vulnerable communities) with hope of our return to their communities. It will allow us to keep our personnel employed. It will help us keep core functions of the organization going.
Your contributions today will help us keep our organization. This includes providing the highest level of care for girls and teen mothers living in vulnerable communities. Your help means that they'll be able to return to school and our summer programs in the future. It means they'll be able to graduate and find jobs, breaking with cycles of poverty and violence surrounding them. So support us now so that we can hold our ground and later rise up.
