Trash pickers are among the most vulnerable people. Their work was already dangerous and susceptible to the corona virus, but they must keep working by collecting trash to survive.
The government has instituted a lock-down of businesses, so there is less trash on the street, and from schools, shops and malls. But there is now more trash in residential areas, because people are using on-line delivery. The problem is that the trash pickers and trash collectors cannot sell their trash because recycling companies closed
Luckily there is a solution to this difficult problem. The community has received food donations from several organizations. These donations are urgently needed. They included rice, eggs, canned meats, and instant noodles.
The community is grateful and thankful for what they have received in this difficult time. Your generous donations will help us and help them, help the children and their families to get something to fight the virus.
