mexico covid-19 relief
Once upon a time…Dianita was a happy girl, going to school and playing with her friends. With a big smile on her face that set her apart from the other children, she would punctually arrive at the María Guadalupe Center in Monte Albán, Oaxaca, to have breakfast before heading to class. One day, her life took an unexpected and inexplicable turn: a virus threatened her life and that of her family. They did their best to stay home, but this isn’t always possible when you have to work to pay for food, rent, and other essential items. Today, her whole family – ten members in total – is infected with Covid-19. With no work, money or health insurance, and with many prescriptions for expensive drugs, they struggle to live. You can help them.”
Like Dianita’s family, many families in Oaxaca are facing a similar situation amid an alarming increase in the number of COVID-19 infections and deaths. As of July 21, 2020, Oaxaca has already recorded more than 9,000 cases and almost 850 deaths. Crecemos has been accompanying the families we support, trying to respond as much as possible to their needs by distributing food and cleaning products, and offering remote learning activities and emotional support. Now, the need is even greater. We must help them get better, and in a few cases, fight this virus to stay alive.
