Summary

Your project will support 150 families, who were already fighting against poverty and hunger, to meet the essential needs of food and hygiene during the closure of COVID-19 and who are also starting to catch the virus and do not have money to pay medications or medical care. Crecemos will provide nutritious and balanced meals to families, as well as hygiene and protection kits (detergent, soap and masks), will help pay for medicines and medical care for people infected between May and October.

Challenge

Families living in the impoverished neighborhood of Monte Alban are mostly temporary or informal workers (like porters, street musicians, necklace vendors, domestic workers, bricklayer helpers, day laborers). Non-essential businesses are shut down and tourism, Oaxaca's main industry, is at a stand-still. Facing a wave of unemployment and acute poverty, families need help to cope with the emergency situation.

Solution

Crecemos will distribute nutritious and balanced meals to the families to alleviate hunger and economic fragility. In addition, Crecemos will provide hygiene kits to mitigate the spread of the virus inside households, and to protect parents who are forced to work without protective equipment. Furthermore, Crecemos will provide remote training on how to avoid the spread of COVID-19 and will monitor children at risk of malnutrition.

Long-Term Impact

The project provides basic humanitarian aid with an eye to strengthening families in the medium and long-term. Using a proven educational and accompaniment approach, Crecemos is able to stay in touch with families who would otherwise be isolated and vulnerable during these unprecedented times. Close accompaniment enables families to build upon their resource base, stay safe and healthy during the pandemic, and avoid falling into extreme poverty.
