During the month of March, Asociación Manos Amigas conducted the Life Skills Workshop for the participants of the Project “Bringing Income Generation Opportunities to Youth in Vulnerable Situations”, which is carried out in conjunction with TELUS International.
After the closure suffered due to the prevention quarantine, the Miraflores Workshop resumed the production of handicrafts and unique products based on the fruit of the morro tree, betting on the economic reactivation of the artisans.
At the same time, the NGO continued with food deliveries and food supplements in San Pedro Puxtla and Tacuba, Ahuachapán and in Comunidad Miraflores in San Luis Talpa, La Paz. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, 180 pounds of chicken were delivered to vulnerable families. The Association also extended its delivery of non-perishable food packages in Cantón Arcos del Espino and in the municipality of Jucuarán.
During the month of March, Clínica Miraflores resumed its health care by applying biosecurity measures to prevent the Covid-19 pandemic. The clinic treats approximately 3,000 people annually, including children and adults.
In the coming months, Manos Amigas will start a new project that will seek to support Salvadoran women, where the objective will be to specialize ladies in a new opportunity to live better.
