The project to support child victims of the sea has since the beginning of its online launch raised the sum of 115 dollars which we have received from worthy donors whom we congratulate and thank for their commitment and support.
This sum has been used to buy hygiene kits distributed to 5 child victims in the presence of their parents.
The families of the victims displaced in the suburbs of the city of Saint-Louis have been living in increasingly difficult conditions since they were moved to makeshift homes.
At one point the association had to withdraw the project online because the needs and expectations of the child victims were numerous and this was in contrast to the small amount collected on GlobalGiving.
However, the monitoring done by the association on the families of the victims, and the overwhelming context of covid-19 which worsens the situation of the victims, and the high rate of child victims who have dropped out of school since this natural disaster, all this motivated the Association Jeunesse Espoir to reactivate the online project on the GlobalGiving platform to help the victims who are on the brink of the precipice.
Thus, the Association Jeunesse Espoir invites the fantastic community of GlobalGiving to join our cause in this project which aims to support the education, health, and well-being of children from families who are victims of the advancing sea in Saint-Louis, Senegal.
In the next report we will present illustrations of the site visits and other developements that have motivated us to reactivate this project.
