Mexico: Oaxaca COVID Relief
Approximately 50-60% of people in this southern state of Mexico are daily wage earners, which means they earn the money today to eat tomorrow. They have no back-up resources. Add to that the temporary halt to the tourist industry here; and many, many people are without income right now. COVID 19 will hit this community hard due to the culture here and slow response from the government to try to flatten the curve. There is insufficient testing being done and we believe our state only has 15 available ventilators. Many people here live in households with vulnerable family members.
We are assisting local believers with cash donations to help pay rent, electric and water bills, medical needs, and food. We also are distributing food baskets to help keep food on the table during difficult, and for some, dire times. Your help is so appreciated!
