Provide food and hygiene kits to 100+ struggling families in the State of Mexico

With this support families in Tultitlán and Lomas de San Isidro can cover their basic needs during the COVID-19 crisis

Our story

A mechanic, a construction helper, a toy refurbisher, and a building security guard. Joaquin, Leonardo, Karina, and Juan. What do they have in common? Unfortunately, all are currently without work due to closures for the COVID-19 crisis and are struggling to make ends meet. Each of their incomes has been reduced to zero for nearly a month. 

Before these closures times were already difficult in Tultitlán and Lomas de San Isidro, where Amextra has worked with families since 2009 and 2006, respectively.  In Tultitlán, most families were living previously on a mere $4,500 pesos ($200 US dollars) per month, an amount that in many cases has dropped to $0, or even into negative numbers as expenses overcome even the small savings and emergency sources of income family may have had. 

Our normal services of formal education, book clubs, English classes and psychological accompaniment in Tultitlán and Lomas de San Isidro to have all been suspended for the time being in response to COVID-19. What families most need now is help reaching their basic needs, and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in their family and their community.

After conducting a diagnostic in the communities, Amextra has decided to provide three types of support for families:

  1. Provide food packages to 140 families
  2. Provide hygiene kits to 100 families
  3. include verified information about Covid-19 to the families in the form of paper handouts and on social media.   

Our hope is that this support provides not only an economic relief but also emotional relief from the stress caused by the lack of work and alarming rumors about the virus. We completed are first delivery to families from April 17-24, and are looking for funds to make at least one more donation to these same families.

For those of us who have had extra time to read, spend time with family, or maybe learn a new skill during the COVID-19 quarantine, this is our chance to stand in solidarity with families that have been wondering how to feed their children, and how to feed themselves. It´s a chance to make their lives a little easier with the provision of food and basic hygiene supplies (soap, bleach, surface cleaner), which also contribute to decreasing the spread of COVID-19.

Help us today with a donation of any size. The families will be very grateful for your help during this time of great stress and need!
