Project Report | May 5, 2020
Ari joins the fight against Covid-19. Will you help him?

Youth start by helping at home

Dear GlobalGivers, 

Do you want to know the power of youth? 

In Iztapalapa, the dense Mexico City borough of 1.8 million inhabitants that is #1 for COVID-19 cases in Mexico, people are not sheltering in place and many lack water to wash their hands. Rumors have spread that Covid-19 is a disease of the rich or that it is all a political scheme, so many people here believe there is no risk. Yet this community, Iztapalapa, is #1 for Covid-19 cases in the country.

Today is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Will you donate extra today?

Ari, who we told you about in the last report, needs your help to stop COVID-19 transmission in his community of Iztapalapa. With your donation, we will quickly and remotely train up Ari and 79 of his peers to become leaders for local Covid-19 prevention. We will run a digital educational campaign to get accurate information to the entire borough in a way that resonates with them, and we are installing portable handwashing stations for those who have to go out to work and don´t have running water at home to wash their hands.

Together, through these key and quick actions, we will enable 800,000 people in Iztapalapa to stay safe from COVID-19.

Mexican youth have the power to stop Covid-19 in crowded and marginalized Iztapalapa. Will you make it a reality?

With gratitude,
Shoshana

PS- Sending along a few photos of how Ari and his peers are being agents for change in their homes and communities so far.
