As a result of the COVID-19 crisis here in Peru, we’re asking HOOPsters across the globe for contributions for our brothers and sisters in need in Arequipa. We’ll use these donations to obtain and distribute emergency food baskets, as well as basic hygiene supplies. Your donations will go directly towards our emergency #LaCanastaSolidaria campaign and straight to the families in need. In the happy case that we receive more money than needed to secure the basic immediate needs of our families, your financial support will be re-invested in our programmes to combat poverty in the long term. This is important as we expect that there will be long-term effects of the coronavirus epidemic, such as an economic crisis and job losses, that will negatively affect our families.
