As you may have seen in the news, Latin America is currently a major hotspot for Covid-19. We are putting a priority on immediate vital emergency food supplies to the families, especially for the elderly and disabled, and hygiene products for the schools during the current Covid-19 pandemic in Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras and Perú. Lockdowns, restrictions on travel and isolation have taken a heavy toll in the communities.
To give us a big boost GlobalGiving will be 50% matching all donations up to $50 between 14th-18th September as we aim to provide tonnes of emergency food supplies including pastas, rice, cooking oil, salt, sugar, oatmeal, sardines and other items to hundreds of families as well as boxes of soaps, hand sanitizers, fase masks and disinfectants for all our classrooms in all our countries.
Despite the classrooms being closed our students have been busy with Plan Huerto (sustainable vegetable gardens) in Honduras and Ecuador. These will provide much needed income for the families and the schools during these unprecedented times. Once Covid-19 allows we plan to increase the Plan Moo herd in Ecuador and start Plan Tilapia (fish farms) in Honduras. We also plan to trial rain capture tanks to prepare the communities for the long dry months ahead.
With your brilliant donations, matched at 50% up to $50 by GlobalGiving, we will be able to make huge inroads into our Covid-19 response across all our communities in Latin America.
Thank you so much for anything you can donate to our immediate emergency food programme. Please feel free to share this with friends, family and work colleagues as every little helps!
