Because of COVID-19, the women of JOTO are experiencing major financial problems. As restaurants, schools, and factories have been shuttered to curb the rapid spread of COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus pandemic, authorities are being pressured to close markets. This has a major effect on the already little income of the women. Unfortunately, our women do not have a good social safety net, where they can fall back on in unexpected circumstances. 

Nutrition and hygiene are especially vital right now. Without proper food intake to boost immune systems, nobody will be able to fight a disease that comes their way. If this disease spreads, the people in Africa and other developing areas will be the most vulnerable. 

For 450 euro a week we can provide food and hygiene products for the 23 women of JOTO including their households.
