At this time of global health crisis, we want to keep our sponsors informed about the situation of the tens of thousands of children and their families that we support.
The COVID-19 crisis, whose number of victims continues to grow, is also depriving more than 1.5 billion children and young people of education. The countries where Aide et Action works, where your sponsorships are implemented, are obviously concerned.
Following the decision to close schools in the countries and the announcement of the governments' health directives, we have suspended all activities related to the preparation of your correspondence, from mid-March onwards, in order to avoid exposing children, teachers and Aide et Action teams to the risk of contamination by the virus.
What is Aide et Action doing to help the most vulnerable children?
Thanks to the loyal support of our sponsors, our teams are doing their utmost to protect these vulnerable populations by raising their awareness of preventive measures and distributing hygiene products and basic foodstuffs. These actions are obviously carried out with all the necessary precautions to avoid the spread of the virus.
If you currently have a sponsorship in progress and have any questions, please contact our Donor Relations team by email at [email protected] or by leaving your contact details via telephone message on 01.55.25.70.35 or 01.55.25.70.07 to be called back. We will get back to you as soon as possible, even though we work remotely.
How can we help the teams on the ground?
According to UNESCO, if we do nothing, 25% of children are at risk of dropping out of school permanently as a result of the crisis, as many of them will have to help their parents cope with an increased lack of resources and food. This is why we have launched a call for emergency donations.
To help us, you can contribute or simply share it with as many people as possible. The more of us there are, the stronger we will be to protect the most vulnerable from the virus through education and prevention.
YES, I AGREE WITH THE CALL FOR DONATIONS:
