Water and Health for Communities in El Salvador!
The Salvadoran Association for Humanitarian Aid, PRO-VIDA, has been working in El Salvador for 35 years, hand in hand with the Salvadoran people.
Like so many impoverished countries, the pandemic has been a severe blow in El Salvador, costing lives and exposing the deep inequities, system failures and government corruption. The pandemic has magnified the economic and social crisis already afflicting El Salvador, pushed rising unemployment, caused greater militarization of the streets and resulted in deeper poverty, making it virtually impossible for many families to afford basic supplies, food or medicine. In this context, the objective of Pro-Vida’s project is to provide direct assistance and promote preventative measures against COVID-19 in the family setting with emphasis on health and water. Prioritizing women heads of household and families with underage children, funds are needed to provide medical and psychological services to more communities, including COVID-19 protection kits, family deworming, educational campaigns on prevention and rationing use of water, and more.
