How does this affect our families?
Most of the families we work with are day laborers and are immediately without work. With no savings, unemployment benefits or other means of income, they are in an extremely difficult situation. Additionally, the children are not able to study, and the majority of the families have little education. The families also live in small spaces with many family members and homes in disrepair, so the curfew is exceedingly uncomfortable and difficult.
What we are doing:
Through the help of our donors, GRACES provided 260 food bags over the span of two weeks. This is enough to cover each family at the school for a month’s worth of food. We will continue to provide this service to our families as long as there is no school. The teachers have also put together study plans for their students. The materials do not require the use of the internet. All of our teachers continue to communicate with their students and families, providing educational and emotional support.
