What’s the problem?
As often, the poorest and most vulnerable people of all ages are victims of crisis. Specially of one as big as the Coronacrisis. Many of the adults are day laborers, have lost their jobs and earn nothing. Many of them live in a very small spaces and have no reserves at all. Such as the children of the after-school Second Home Child Outreach Program (SHCOP) and their families. They have no one to fall back on and are completely left to their on devices. Nepal has no support measures like ours.
With a lot of improvisation, the SHCOP-volunteers still try to support the children and their families. Where possible they provide them with food and all kinds of other necessary goods, which they can still get. They have also started growing their own fruit and vegetables, but that does not immediately yield enough tomorrow. Furthermore, the resources of the SHCOP and the volunteers are very limited and they now urgently need help to continue to provide much-needed support to the children.
What is the solution?
The solution is that 4SmilingFaces transfers money with which the volunteers can purchase food, necessary materials, seeds and vegetable plants.
What is the result?
The result is that the volunteers can help the children of SHCOP and their families with food and other necessary materials.
