Planting Prosperity in the Context of the COVID 19
By Maria Varela - Plant Your Forest Program Director
With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting daily life, we thank you for your continued support and wish you and your community health and peace. At this time, PACHAMAMA RAYMI faces new challenges. As we adapt to these unprecedented circumstances, we will continue to serve our planet to the best of our ability. However, to ensure the safety of our community and ourselves, we have made the necessary modifications to our programming that we would like to share with you.
Since our organization's programming is already aligned with efforts to prevent and mitigate the effects of COVID-19, we are duplicating this work. We are placing more emphasis on Preventive Health programs, especially educating our communities about COVID19's key hygiene practices, Healthy Homes and Improving Family Nutrition, because we know that children and seniors with good nutrition can overcome any disease. Home-grown nutrition will be more important than ever. Communities will become completely self-sufficient as travel restrictions increase and assets become scarce. Gardens, and the knowledge and tools to grow them, become a lifeline.
We maintain permanent contact with the campesino families, who have full confidence in our expert campesino leaders and their guidance. To this end, we communicate via telephone, videos, radio programs and social networks, among others.
We are grateful to be in a situation that allows us to continue serving our community during this crisis.
