As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the globe, we are doing our best to serve our clients and community here in El Salvador. Our circumstances are rapidly changing, but for right now El Salvador is under a national military quarantine. This has left those who live on the streets in a vulnerable position.
To deal with the situation, we have quickly mobilized to coordinate with the Salvadoran government to open a temporary shelter available to those who don’t have a home where they can self-quarantine during this crisis. We are currently filled to capacity and providing meals, activities, workshops, access to medical care, bathrooms, showers, and space for everyone to sleep.
We have no idea how long the situation will go on, for now we are working on covering the needs of our clients for the next 30 days of the current national quarantine order. We have several crucial needs to meet during this time to assure that those who are vulnerable are receiving the best possible care, and there are several ways that you can be involved.
You can donate right now from anywhere in the world, in the following ways:
