Tragedy in the Midst of Crisis

Tragedy in the Midst of Crisis


The man in the photo is Alberto. He and his wife Francisca lost their home and most of their belongings in a house fire.

Alberto was already out of work due to COVID-19, and the loss of their home has only exasperated an already difficult situation. Thankfully no one was harmed in the fire.

Alberto worked doing construction during the week where he made approximately 12 dollars per day. On the weekends he would sell fruit cocktails to supplement his income, which would bring in approximately 8 dollars per day. Because of COVID-19 and his age, Alberto has not been permitted to return to work. Furthermore, because of the mandatory quarantine in Juarez, he has not been able to sell cocktails on the weekend.

Thanks to a generous donation from one of our partners, Amigo Fiel will start construction on a new home for Alberto and his wife in the next two weeks. In the meantime, Alberto and Francisca are living in a makeshift structure made out of cardboard and shipping pallets.

We delivered groceries to their home last week and are doing everything we can to support them through their difficulty.

A large portion of the population in Juarez already live in extreme poverty and the situation is only exacerbated because of layoffs and job losses due to COVID-19.

With the support of our partners, we are helping through this crisis by meeting physical needs like Alberto's and delivering bags of groceries and medical supplies to people in our community.



The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
