Working for children and the pandemic by COVID-19

Summary

We seek to strengthen our program of care for children from 0 to 6 years and their families living in violence and poverty and pandemic in Mexico. Our care model has had to be adapted to the contingency situation of COVID-19 and we continue to provide educational-therapeutic care using technological tools, imagination and creativity. With this attention we are fighting family violence, social inequality and providing psychological support to families in these difficult moments.

Challenge

The JUCONI Family Care Center is located in Colonia La Loma just behind the Mercado Hidalgo in Puebla City, Mexico. This area is considered one of the most dangerous due to its high rates of violence as well as one of the poorest in the city. It is currently closed due to the health contingency caused by COVID-19. Moreover, in the face of this new reality, they are in a very difficult economic situation that could increase the rates of violence within the home.

Solution

The continuous educational-therapeutic attention to families has contributed to the development and strengthening of parental skills allowing more children from 0 to 6 years old to achieve an adequate development as well as to achieve the reduction of violence. From the contingency, our work had to adapt to the new normality. The sessions with the families are done through the use of technology and with audiovisual materials created by the therapists.

Long-Term Impact

Through positive discipline and free play, we seek to help adults and children create an attachment that will help lay the foundation for a relationship of love and respect that will motivate proper care for children. In our Attention Center we have personnel trained in giving attention to families affected by violence and poverty through the application of innovative therapeutic tools based on a rights approach. We impact annually 920 children and 327 families in our care programs.
