Members, collaborators and volunteers
It's been 4 months since I started the "daily sandwich" project and I've reached the end. It was a beautiful four months, full of satisfactions and thanks, but also reproaches from some families that were not included in the program. The children were the ones who did not understand why they did not benefit and it was very difficult to clarify that others are poorer, so that no one would feel offended or humiliated because of their situation.
Alina, a mother with 7 children, told me that it is very reassuring to wake up in the morning and not be afraid that you don't have bread for your children. To know that every morning you provided breakfast for children is a real joy.
Susana, the 84-year-old woman, finds it the hardest to tell her that the program is over. She was so happy in the four months so I will continue to take her food at least once a week (considering that she lives in the village of Sopteriu, about 5 km of stone road). Otherwise, we are fine, the children have started school, and we are preparing for the situation in which covid 19 will appear and we will go to school online.
Once again we thank you for your help and wish you all the best!
