Because most street vendors and informal small businesses have lost their income due to the curfew, more and more calls for help from “former” mothers reach us.
That is why we started issuing grocery packages last week. Not an easy task, because we have to meet the mothers somewhere on the side of the road, because you can only get into the slums on foot and because we have to be careful not to arouse envy or even hostility from our neighbours.
Our social workers can only speak to the mothers from inside the car to avoid any risk of infection.
We thank all our friends who made this aid package offer possible!
