Project Description

SUSTENTO MEXICO

COVID-19 in Mexico

Before the Novel Coronavirus hit, there were 61.1 million  of the 128 million population (CONEVAL; INEGI) living below the poverty line in Mexico.  This number will grow drastically if there aren't support sytems put in place for those who live just above the poverty line.

Many women in our community live on a day-to-day economy - ‘I work today, I eat tomorrow’, which means that the lockdowns and restrictions put in place due to Covid-19 has put many of them in very difficult financial situations.  A lot of women are still risking their lives to go out and work! 72% of Mexicans are part of the informal workforce, which means they have no guaranteed salaries, or they have small informal businesses running out of their homes. 

We have recieved a lot of calls asking for help.

OUR RESPONSE

Sustento Foodbank that will be distributing carepackages of food and household supplies to women and thier families. We also offer emoptional support and work advice in colaboration with our Nave Nodriza Project that is a place of tools, resoruces, community and support.

IN TIMES LIKE THESE, FOODBANKS PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN DELAYING THE DECLINE INTO POVERTY.

 

THERE ARE NO OPERATING FOODBANKS IN THE STATE OF AGUASCALIENTES!

OUR ACTION

WE HAVE ORGANISED A FOOD DISTRIBUTION BANK TO REACH WOMEN REGISTERED WITH US WITH CARE PACKAGES OF FOOD WATER & MEDICINE.

WE ARE COLLABORATING CHILDRENS CUP  WHO NORMALLY HAVE CENTRES WHERE THEY FEED CHILDREN FROM LOW INCOME FAMILIES AND LION'S CLUB  WHO ARE GIVING US THEIR SPACE AS A WAREHOUSE FOR FOODBANKHERE IN AGUASCALIENTES MEXICO.

 

THERE ARE CURRENTLY 750 & COUNTING PEOPLE WAITING FOR CARE PACKAGES!

OUR METHOD

 

We're raising money to buy the supplies directly from wholesalers

Because:

  1. Many people in our country find themselves in an economic strain so it's not a sustainable or fair  option in our estimation, to ask them to give of the very little they have.
  2. Prices of basic food staples have risen so this is a cost effective option
  3.  It's a safer way to handle & distribute packages during this time - flattening the curve

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Why don't you get locals to donate?

A1. We have approached local large companies for help, bureacracy and alternate interests mean that although we've had many yeses, not many have committed, it's commonplace here.

A2. As mentioned 72% of people in this cpountry live in a day-to-day economy so lack of work and commerce has tightened everyones wallet, we don't think it fair to ask people who don't have to buy products that are currently far more expensive than normal to donate to others.
