‘’My inspiration comes from thinking of all children back in my country, who have not returned to school since the beginning of the pandemic. For over a year, they have been away from their safe space for learning and playing. Not only that, but unfortunately, home violence has drastically increased due to the difficult economic situation people are facing.’’
– Lluvia Escalona
In order to provide concrete help to the community of Chihuahua in Mexico, Together For Children started a Psychological Support Programme attending 16 vulnerable families. Weekly psychological sessions and a gift card for grocery shopping have been given since September 2020. We are running on May 15th in order to raise funds that will enable us to continue bringing hope to the families in need. All donations proceeding from the "RUN FOR HOPE - 21km" will be designated to this Programme.
Special thanks to Travel-Pro who is doubling any amount we fundraise.
