“We know that the peak of donations falls, and, at any moment, it will be harder to receive help if this battle extends. We have a contingency plan, our “plan b” so we can have food and inputs if the crisis gets worse. This is why we need to be very responsible with the management of the donations and distribution. Only as a team we can guarantee the help to those who need it the most. It is not a moment to judge, believe me, we are all looking for solutions”. Karla Morales wrote on twitter.
