THE CURRENT SITUATION DUE TO CORONA IS DESCRIBED BELOW.
Sin Soluka Ecuador is a non-profit organisation in Quito, Ecuador. It cares for street children and adolescents as well as children from deprived backgrounds, all of whom have practically no chance of an education. Through the organisation the children and adolescents are given the chance to attend school, and the aim is for them to get a school leaving certificate. In the long run, being able to go to school should make a valuable contribution towards the children and adolescents being able to live an independent life away from the streets. The aim of Sin Soluka Switzerland is to provide financial support for Sin Soluka Ecuador.
At least 99% of the money donated to Sin Soluka Switzerland flows directly into the project in Ecuador.
Both Ecuador and the South American continent as a whole have been severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The number of new cases remains high and a flattening of the curve is not yet in sight.
The financial situation of Sin Soluka’s families continues to be very challenging; many have lost their jobs and have no current income.
The team onsite continues to deliver monthly parcels with the most needed food and hygiene products.
Since the complete lockdown measures have been lifted, the project can once again provide lunch at the project centre, of course under strict adherence to the hygiene and safety measures.
Schools are still closed, and classes are all taking place online. Thanks to generous donations, the project has managed to repair several computers. These are now available for the children to do their homework. However, there is still a long way to go until we can guarantee the infrastructure needed for all the 280 children to follow their online classes.
If it is possible for you to support Sin Soluka financially, we would be very grateful!
We are currently looking for donations to provide the following:
- An internet-data-plan for all the children, in order for them to participate in online classes
- More computers for the project centre to be used by the families with no devices at home
- Monthly parcels with urgently needed food and hygiene products for the families with no current income
The schools and the project operation have been closed. The current lock-down restrictions have drastic consequences for the Sin Soluka beneficiaries.
Most of the parents have lost their jobs (as domestic helpers, laundresses, street vendors, etc.). That means: no income. The families are lacking the most necessary goods such as food and hygiene products.
Therefore the team on-site has decided to deliver parcels with the most necessary goods to the families concerned. The board of Sin Soluka Switzerland has decided to immediately transfer an extraordinary amount of $ 4000 in order to support this necessary activity.
If it is possible for you to support Sin Soluka financially (now or in the future), we would be very grateful!
All our events take place in Switzerland.
