Emergency aid in times of the Corona pandemic

Our target countries Peru and Eswatini are resolutely implementing the global recommendations to contain the Corona pandemic. However, the virus has spread largely in Peru.

The impact of the lockdown on the population and especially on poorer people is dramatic: many of our beneficiaries are working in the informal sector and have no reserves whatsoever. Those who earn nothing today cannot feed their families in the evening. Our beneficiaries have no insurance. The very limited compensation payments from the government do not cover the cost of living. Sahee has therefore set up an emergency fund that enables our partner organisations to provide emergency aid to all those people and families with whom they work and who are facing problems that threaten their existence.
