The last couple of months have been really hard,our local community has been struggling with the virus more than ever. With most of the transportation system beeing shut down, the only thing the kids and their families is our van. We have been driving the kids from their comunities to the hospital, back and forth every day, It has really been a challenge to find the way to do it safely, but we have been doing a great job.
We provided the families and the driver with masks and sanitizer to stop the spread of the virus. These families live in really isolated comunites, normally it takes them hours on the public transport to get to the city. Our driver has been really nice to them, and he takes them all the way and drops them off right at their front door. You can see some pictures of the kids at their homes down below.
These families live in really poor comuniies, and even in normal conditions it's really hard for them to afford the trip to the check up, that's why we provide the transportation. It's important that they don't miss any appointments so they can win this battle aggainst cancer.
It makes us really happy to see that even though it seems like the whole region has stopped, these kids are able to continue their treatment as planned. It would be really sad for them to be forced to stop, just cause they can't make their way down to the hostipal.
