2022- Providing COVID-19 emergency relief in El Salvador

​The situation in El Salvador is difficult, due to the reality of insecurity and violence, which has been increasingly worsening. This situation has consequences for the local population: displacement of families to other places by threats, migration, getting into debt, and mental health problems.

In the poor area called La Chacra, most of the population is engaged day by day in street sales and domestic work. Added to this reality are the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic that has led families to greater poverty, along with the recent tropical storms Amanda and Cristobal which have hit the entire national territory and several families have lost their homes and all their belongings.

Good Action Foundation has helped in the face of this emergency providing immediate needs: food baskets, clothing, mats, face masks, some medicines, personal hygiene, and cleaning supplies to disinfect the houses.
