The schools have been closed indefinitely since March 13th. Teachers are facing great financial problems to buy food and pay the rent
- Lack of money from the parents:
Many parents have lost their jobs and find it difficult to feed their children, and they are also unable to pay school fees.
It is uncertain if the teachers will come back when the schools reopen.
There is great fear in the slums. People fear the spread of the virus and have little means to prevent it.
Despite the respect for hygiene and social distance, a new energy, consisting of solidarity and mutual help, has been created within the communities.
- New hygiene measures are needed:
Cleaning and disinfection of the environment is now a priority, especially in schools. It is necessary to install stations to wash and disinfect hands. However, these measures are very costly.
